Mrs. Nesbitt

Hello & Welcome!


My name is Mrs. Nesbitt, Director of School Services


This is my first year at Clara B Ford Academy and I am excited to be here! Prior to coming to Clara B Ford Academy, I worked in administration in Southfield, Michigan. I have worked in the field of education for almost 19 years in various roles/responsibilities and absolutely loved every journey. I received my undergraduate degree from Wayne State University. I earned both of my master’s degrees in Counseling Education and Educational Leadership from Wayne State and Central Michigan Universities.

During my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, volunteering and spending time with family and friends. I also love to catch up on the TV series, Chicago PD with my husband when we get some free time. 

I am looking forward to a rewarding year with the students and staff of 
Clara B Ford Academy!

WE value Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)! SEL class is every day, every morning!

·       Social-emotional learning helps students work on things like coping with feelings and setting goals.

·       It also helps students develop interpersonal skills like working in teams and resolving conflicts.

·       A school wide emphasis on social-emotional learning can help reduce bullying and disciplinary incidents.

OUR school wide SEL class topics:

1.      Accountability

2.      Team-working

3.      Respect

4.      Helping Others

5.      Motivation

6.      Organization & Planning
