Esther Manning Bunt

I am married to a Ragland native , Tony Bunt. 

I attended Pell City High School. I have a masters degree in education from Jacksonville State University.  I have been at teacher since 1989. I joined the Ragland team as a Kindergarten teacher in August 2010.

  My parents were Hubert and Inez Manning. They taught and nurtured me in deep Christian values.

I still  hold dear and deeply cherish my upbringing.

I have two adult sons. Gabriel Ford is a Ph.D professor married to Leah Huizar.

Seth Ford is a head basketball coach at Ashville High school with a masters degree in Sports Management. Seth is married to Tiffany Bryant Ford. 

I am an active member of Eden Westside Baptist Church.

I enjoy spending time with my family, participating in church activities, as well as canning and cooking. I especially enjoy making jams, jellies, and apple butter.

It is a privilege to be a kindergarten teacher.

It is my greatest joy  to teach them to read.

It is a real honor to be a part of helping shape young minds at this age.

I enjoy training and teaching children the skills and values that will help them as they grow to be an adult.
