Hello, everyone my name is Jaqueline Ford I was born and raised in Saint Louis Missouri, I moved to Columbia Missouri in 1995. I am the mother of an amazing young man who has always been my pride and joy. Along with being a mother, I am also a grandmother of two talented girls.
I have been working with young children for 26 years and have been a part of Nora Stewart Early Learning Center for 10 years. Before I joined the Nora Stewart family I worked for Columbia Public Schools at Benton Elementary for 9 years as a paraprofessional.
When I joined the Nora Stewart family in 2006, I worked as the Lead Teacher in the 4 and 5-year-old classroom for 9 years and just recently moved to the kitchen. Even though I have the pleasure of preparing meals for the children, I am still able to do hands-on activities with the children. I am pleased to be a part of Nora Stewart and making a difference in ever child’s life.
