Hello PPM families! My name is Kelly Ford. I live here in Lebanon with my husband, Ronnie, and our two daughters. Lily , and Lucy. Growing up in Boone County and being able to live as an adult in our community is such a blessing. Graduating from Western Boone and the IUPUI allowed me to accomplish my educational goals but also learn some really good life lessons! Working with children has been a huge part of my life, and PPM has given me a wonderful opportunity to enjoy and actively participate in the education of children. Spending time with my family, camping, and baking are some of my favorite ways to spend my time! Children’s smiles and excitement motivate me to plan lessons and projects to continue their learning and growing. Thank you, parents, for sending your children to us!
