My name is Cheri Ford. My mother was a school teacher for 31 years so I never really ever considered any other career. When I started in the Education program at UAB, it became clear to me early on that Early Childhood Education was my place to be.
I am married to Alan Ford and we have three grown up children; Meg, Colby and Anneliese and we have one sweet grandson, Wesson. We also have three fur babies (dogs) that are truly my babies now that my children are grown. I enjoy traveling and spending as much time as possible with my family and dogs.
