Nancy Ward, English Content Director

 Having taught all levels of Pre-AP English and both AP Language and Literature, Nancy brings forty years of classroom experience to the director’s position. Beginning as a facilitator of The Arkansas Writing Project in 1986, she has presented professional development for teachers on a variety of literacy topics ranging from bridging the gap between analyzing a text and writing the essay to scaffolding a series of lessons to teach middle school students how to analyze a text. Her goal with AIMS is to support AP teachers in any way she can.

Nancy has been married to Dennis Ward for forty-two years; they have one daughter Melissa Sanders and two grandchildren, Evan and Caroline.
