4D Madison Buford

Hello, my name is Mrs. Buford, and I am the teacher in 4D. I started teaching in 2015 after graduating from Arkansas Tech University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I absolutely love teaching at Center Valley Elementary! My husband Charley and I have two daughters, Nora and Claire. I am a member of Victory Missionary Baptist Church where I serve as an Awana leader. It is my goal to help my students become the best leaders, thinkers, and students they can be. My students and I work together to be examples for the rest of the school because my students are officially the oldest in the building. I can't wait to have another great year full of fun and learning!
