MEET THE BUCHANAN STAFF
Ms. Ford - Library Media Specialist
Hello, Buchanan families! My name is Heather Ford, and I have been the library media specialist here at Buchanan Elementary for 16 years. Prior to that, I was a classroom teacher for 4 years (3 years at Coolidge, and 1 year at Buchanan). I love getting to know all of the students here at Buchanan, along with teaching them library and research skills!
In my spare time, I enjoy reading (naturally), music, cross-stitching, doing Sudoku puzzles, traveling, and spending time with my family. On occasion, I can be found at a classic car show with my dad (he's the car expert, not me!).
A goal I have for this school year is to weed half of the library's nonfiction section (removing books that are outdated or in need of replacement).
Five words I would use to describe Buchanan are welcoming, caring, collaborative, engaging, and fun!

Did you know that Buchanan is starting up the Mileage Club? It's an opportunity for students to be physically active and earn achievement tokens for the laps they complete. A big thank you to Mrs. Trantham, Mrs. Edwards, and all the Buchanan staff who help make this program possible for our students. The Mileage Club will be held during lunch recess daily and will begin March 1. Great things are happening at Buchanan!
