I am Banita Ford, and I have been teaching business education since 2004. I am our high school's FBLA and NSHSS advisor, eSports head coach, and Cyber Patriots coach. I really enjoy teaching the computer classes in our business department, however over the last 5 years, Entrepreneurship has become my favorite class to teach because of all the different ideas and how inspired the students seem to be in that class. I also teach graphic design, game design, personal finance, AP Computer Science Principles, and Cyber Security. Outside of school, I love to watch baseball (Atlanta Braves), ride motorcycles, and make things using the laser cutter.
