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.
