My name is Pam Ard. I am in my fourteenth year of teaching, thirteen of which have been with J.R. Ingram Jr. Elementary. This is my seventh year working as the K-3 Literacy Intervention Specialist, and I am so excited that J.R. Ingram has this position to serve our young scholars. I taught at J.R. Ingram in the first grade for six years. I previously taught second grade in Chatham County. I love teaching and have a deep passion for teaching children to develop their own love for reading. I feel honored to have your precious children in my classroom.I joined the Ingram family after marrying Andrew Ard, the PE teacher here at Ingram. We have four children; a son Lance, his wife Andrea, our daughter Terran and her husband John. We also have four beautiful grandchildren whom we enjoy spoiling!My family enjoys traveling when we aren't working.
