About Mrs. Ferguson:
I am very excited to be your childs Kindergarten teacher! This will be my fifth year teaching, I taught Pre-K for three years in another district and this will be my second year in Kindergarten with Conroe ISD. I have been married for three years to my awesome husband and we have a son who is 3 months old this month! ! I graduated from Sam Houston State University with my Bachlor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I knew that I wanted to be a teacher since I was very young. I enjoy working with kids because of their curiousity, desire, and
determination. I want to make everyday a new and fun day for every student. A child's education is so important and it is only fair that they have every opportunity to shine and learn as much as they possibly can this school year. I know this year will be a great year!
A Few of my Favorites:
My favorite color is Teal or Mint Green.
My favorite food is pizza or Chick-fil-a.
My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper
My favorite candy is Dove chocolate.
My favorite hobby is crafting.
Lastly my favorite thing to do when I am not at school is to spend time with my family!
I can't wait to meet all of my students and learn all the many things that they love!! This is going to be an awesome year!
