Welcome!! My name is Mrs. Ferguson and I teach First Grade here at Western School! I believe that parent involvement is an integral part of a child's success in school. Communication is very important to me and I enjoy working with families to ensure each child receives the best first grade education possible.
Here are a few ways to contact me: 
Remind: I use the Remind App. This is a quick, easy, and convenient way to contact me throughout the day. I send home information about how to join on the first day of school. 
Phone: Western School 203- 720-5220. I will call you back at my earliest convenience. 

About Mrs. Ferguson

I became a teacher because I love working with and learning from children. Teaching inspires me every day and allows me to consistently learn new strategies and techniques to help my students learn. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Connecticut State University and my Master's Degree in Teaching, Learning, and Assessment from Post University. I started my teaching career 7 years ago and have taught kindergarten through second grade. I am so excited to continue my career in Naugatuck because I was born and raised here. I walked the halls of our schools as a little girl, and my desire to become a teacher was a direct result of the kind and supportive teachers I had growing up in the Naugatuck Public Schools. Western School is a special place to learn and grow because of the wonderful teachers and families. Our community is definitely a great one!! 

A few of my favorite things: 

Coffee and chocolate always make me smile. I love going for walks with my dogs, Daisy and Dixie. I also love spending time with my family.
