Amy Ward

My name is Amy Ward and I have worked at Colham Ferry Elementary since 2011.  I began my teaching career in 1994.  I taught a year in 5th grade, 8 years in 3rd grade, and currently teaching 2nd grade.  I was also a paraprofessional for three years in Third Grade at Colham Ferry prior to teaching 2nd grade.  I graduated from North Georgia College and State University with a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education.  I also am gifted certified.  Since I was 5 years old, I wanted to be a teacher.  Children are a blessing and to work with them each day is a privilege.  My goal as an educator is to provide unique learning experiences which will inspire students to soar in their academics; as well as build character and citizenship in each child.

I was born and raised in Lawrenceville, Georgia.  My husband Keith and I moved to Oconee County in 2007. We have 4 children.  Our oldest three; Ethan, MaKayla, and Caleb are triplets.  Connor is our youngest.  I took 9 years off from teaching to stay at home with my children.  I enjoyed being a stay at home mom.  It was time for me to be back in the classroom doing something else I love...TEACHING!!!  I enjoy the outdoors, spending time with my family, reading, and scrapbooking.  

I am excited about the new year with my second grade students.  This is going to be an amazing year.
