About Mr. Ferguson
Who am I?
I am married to a teacher and am a father of two kiddos. Our family lives in the New Salem Community. When I am not working at New Salem I tend to be an outdoorsman taking on new outdoor projects and challenges.
I have come to learn that our greatest limitation are the limitations we set on ourselves. Human ability is not set at birth. Instead, I believe that every student has unlimited growth potential both academically and socially. It is our great responsibility as educators to teach students how to unlock their potential daily and thrive.
