On April 12, 2022, the Baker School District Board voted to approve the hiring of Lori Ford as Assistant Principal of Brooklyn Primary School beginning next school year. Ms. Ford is currently part of the Brooklyn Primary team, working as a Child Development Specialist.
“Ms. Ford is already such a valuable member of the Brooklyn team,” said Brooklyn Primary Principal Katy Collier. “Stepping into this new leadership role is a natural fit for her.”
Ms. Ford and her husband both grew up in Burns, Oregon; and she completed her student teaching there under the supervision of her former teachers. Ms. Ford then spent six years as an elementary classroom teacher in Monroe, Oregon, before moving to the Baker School District. Prior to teaching, she also worked as a Special Education paraprofessional in the Salem/Keizer School District.
“My husband and I are so grateful to be back in Eastern Oregon and raising our three children in a place and way similar to our own childhoods,” said Ms. Ford. “I love being part of the Brooklyn Primary team and look forward to continuing to serve our amazing students and their families in this new role.”
