          ..::Hello and Welcome to Mrs. Ferguson's Page::..

      I relocated from the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York seven years ago, where I was born and raised. I began my teaching career shortly after receiving my masters degree. Upon moving to North Carolina with my high school sweetheart, Rick, and our family Behron, Gunner, & Chloe, I feel very fortunate to be teaching right here at Southwest Elementary School! I am extremely passionate about teaching and truly enjoy spending every moment educating young children in the classroom each day. I am currently teaching First grade and absolutely love my flourishing First graders!

      My family thoroughly enjoys the warmth of NC! Throughout the year, we go fishing, boating, and camping, and also spend a lot of time outdoors in our pool. We have many great pets, which include: two dogs and two cats; Kopper, Fern, Jada, & Little Kitten :)

     Parents, I appreciate all that you do at home with your child! I look forward to an exciting and successful school year ahead with your child. Please do not hesitate to email me here, or call me at school anytime. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
