My name is Beth Ledford. Growing up I knew that I always wanted to be a teacher! I received my degree in education and was a first and second grade teacher for over 20 years. I got my Orton-Gillingham certification and transitioned from a classroom teacher to a reading specialist. I worked with students one-on-one as well as teaching a small group reading and math Foundations class. It was incredible to see how much progress my students were able to accomplish! I have always believed that learning should be intentional and engaging. I worked hard to foster a loving environment for students to grow and learn. My husband and I moved to Chattanooga from South Carolina last year to be closer to family and I thought I was ready to retire. However, I really missed working with students and decided to tutor. I love reading, playing pickleball and spending time with family. I look forward to being a part of your child’s learning team!
