Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Valerie (Val) Ford. I am a SPED-TA2 at Maxfield. I've been in the SPPS district since 1996. I have worked in the ASD/EBD program the whole time I've worked in the district.
I grew up in the Rondo community where I attended school from elementary through high school. I also attended a post secondary school in the area.
I have multiple certificates from different trainings to help support children with managing emotions and different challenges as well as to help students be successful in their education.
My goal is to do whatever it takes for students to be successful in their education and goals.
