Dr. Pamela Ford

Welcome Back to an amazing and exciting school year at Triangle Lake Montessori Elementary School!  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the staff, students, and school community for the 2021-2022 school year.  I look forward to the upcoming school year as we continue to grow as a school family.    

About Dr. Ford:

I was born in Alamance County, North Carolina.  As a third grader, I had an amazing teacher who greatly inspired me.  It was then that I knew I wanted to be a teacher.  After high school, I attended North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education.  I worked in the Alamance-Burlington Schools District for five years.  During that time I taught 5th grade and served as a Technology Resource Coordinator. Shortly thereafter, I began teaching in the Guilford County Schools District I worked as a teacher, technology facilitator, curriculum facilitator, and school administrator for 17 years. 

In 2006, I received a Masters in School Administration from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and in 2014 I also earned a Doctoral Degree from the same institution.  In my nineteen years in education, I have taught at the elementary level, served as a technology facilitator, worked as a curriculum facilitator and served as an assistant principal.  

On a personal note, I have a son that is a senior in college this year.  I love to shop, cook, travel, plan events, and attend Zumba classes.  I can't leave school until I have cleaned my desk off each afternoon.  Most of all, I love to spend time with my son, Ian! 

My favorite educational quote that is at the heart of why I am a principal reads, "If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves" by Carl Jung. This quote has been a guiding principle by which I have tried to live.  I am proud to be the principal of Triangle Lake Montessori Elementary!
