Hello, my name is Christy Ford and I have been a librarian for 7 years. This will be my first year with Polk County School District as a Media Specialist. I have a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education with an add-on in Elementary from Jacksonville State University. I received my Masters of Library Science from the University of West Alabama. I am originally from Cherokee County, Alabama. I moved to Coosa, Georgia 6 years ago. I am married to Wes Ford. We have 3 children and one grandson. We have one sweet yellow lab dog. I enjoy reading, cooking, swimming, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I am extremely excited about the 2017-2016 school year and the Media Center!
I believe the media center is a critical component of student learning in the 21st Century. The media center should be the heart of the school. The library should be a welcoming place where questions are encouraged and knowledge is gained. I want students to come often to the library and see it as a place to recieve support as well as inspiration. I strive to provide support promptly and pleasantly to staff, students, and guests.
