    It is with great excitement and thankfulness that I continue to serve John E. Ford PK-8 as Principal.  It is truly a gift for me!  I was a Parent, Teacher, Coach, and Assistant Principal at Ford for ten years and value the work being accomplished on this AMAZING campus every day.  John E. Ford PK-8 School is very unique and stands as the only English and Spanish Public Montessori school in the southeastern United States.  Our facility serves students from age 3 through middle school years and emphasizes the following Montessori principles…
    1.    Mixed aged classrooms
    2.    Prepared environments
    3.    Respect and cooperation
    4.    Self-directed learning
    5.    Recognize sensitive periods
    6.    Leadership
    7.    Freedom within limits
    I look forward to seeing our students growth this year, as they continue on their path to adulthood. If I can be of assistance in any way, please feel free to contact me at bennettt@duvalschools.org or 904-630-6540.
