Hello and welcome to 4th Grade ELA and Social Studies! My name is Ms. Ward and I am a mother of one daughter (12) and one son (10) whom I adore. I am certified with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from The Alabama State University (Go Hornets)! I am a proud product of Birmingham City Schools and I started my teaching career in 2007. Teaching, learning, and helping others is my passion! I was blessed to have many awesome educators which, in turn, inspired me to become one. I look forward to an exciting year of teaching, learning, and working with you and your child this school year!
