About Ms. FergusonI grew up in the college town of Iowa City, Iowa, where I spent my childhood exploring the woods around my home, riding horses, and reading, reading, reading! I attended the University of Iowa and got my bachelor's degree in Geography. In Iowa, I began my career in education working at a before and after school program and as a paraeducator.Two years ago I moved across the country to Portland, Oregon to pursue my Master of Arts in Teaching at Concordia University. I graduated in December 2015 and moved to the Snoqualmie Valley in August of 2016. I love living in the Pacific Northwest and being surrounded by the natural beauty of this area.Outside of school, I enjoy spending as much of my free time out-of-doors as possible. I enjoy photography, camping, and traveling anywhere I can, anytime I can!I am so looking forward to an amazing year in Second Grade!
