April Ward, Assistant Principal

I love Sallas Mahone! I have been at Sallas Mahone my entire teaching career. I began as a first grade teacher at Sallas Mahone. After ten years as a first grade teacher, I became an academic coach who worked closely alongside SME teachers to support them with curriculum and instruction. I enjoy professional learning and empowering teachers to be in the state of continuous improvement. I've always thought Sallas Mahone teachers are the best! One of my own greatest professional honors was when I was a finalist for Georgia Teacher of the Year


I am happily married to Max Ward and have three children, Stewart, Katie Lynn, and Allie Rae. All three of my children went to school at Sallas Mahone and I loved every minute of working in the same school as my children and having wonderful educators as my children's teachers. I am thrilled about this incredible year ahead to watch your own children grow and bloom! 


Now, as the assistant principal, I am in my 25th year at Sallas Mahone. Relationships are of vital importance to me; I am committed to balancing strong leadership while strengthening teacher autonomy and student achievement. I am thrilled to be continuing my passion for quality instruction with Sallas Mahone teachers and staff. If I can be of any assistance to you, please don't hesitate to call or email me.  Thanks for partnering with Sallas Mahone this year!
