Meet the Teacher

Welcome to Mrs. Ward's Class!
Ginnie Ward 
     Hello Parents!  My name is Ginnie Ward, and I joined the Sand Hill-Venable Elementary School staff in 2015 as an Intensive Intervention Teacher, and I moved into a Resource classroom in 2016.
     I graduated from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill with a Psychology, B.S., and continued with a Graduate Certification of Teaching- Special Education from University of North Carolina- Charlotte.  I have been working with Exceptional Children since 2007, and I thoroughly love this work!
     I began working with an E.C. population as a therapeutic riding assistant at Mountin' Hopes in Mars Hill, N.C.  I have subsequently worked with the Autism Society of North Carolina and Easter Seals, UCP, helping children learn daily living skills, appropriate behaviors and social skills, and extracurricular academics.  I have worked in Buncombe County Schools since 2011.  
     In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing- pretty much any excuse to get outside!  I also enjoy reading- anything and everything- and spending time with my husband and a slew of animals.
