Mrs. Ford-Williams

 Welcome!  My name is Ella Ford-Williams, and I am the 6th grade science teacher here at Palmetto Middle School.  I was born in Dillon County, but attended most of my post-secondary years in Mullins, and is a proud 1974 graduate of Mullins High School.  I served as a secretary (attendance, guidance) at Mullins High School for 17 years, before coming to Palmetto Middle School many years ago .

 I am excited this year as we embark on a new year of teaching and learning as we partner with parents for a successful school.  Our school's motto is Growing Better Together.
