Mrs. Marla Ford Howell
My name is Marla Ford Howell. I teach Special Education at Chickasaw Elementary. Most of my students call me Mrs. Ford. I taught general education and special education in MS for 28 years, before coming to Chickasaw in 2015. I work with two wonderful paraprofessionals, Mrs. French and Mrs. Odom. We love what we do, and are blessed to be at Chickasaw Elementary.
I am married and I have two grown children and two precious granddaughters. I enjoy Mississippi State football and pageants. I am a member of Lucedale Fine Arts Club, that sponsors the Gingham Tree, an arts and crafts festival. I work closely with the Distinguished Young Women of George County, which is a scholorship program for high school girls. This year I am co-chair of the program and chairman of scholarships. My husband and I reside in the Howell community in George County, MS where we attend Oak Grove Baptist Church.
