About Me

Hello! My name is Jennifer Ferguson. This is my first year at Canyon Pointe Elementary. I am excited to join the Wildcat family. I have taught K-8th PE and fifth grade ELA and Social Studies. I love to read and spend my spare time shopping for and reading books.
I have been married for fourteen years to my husband, Justin. We have two children, Deacon and Elliot. Deacon is starting sixth grade this year, and Elliot will be in third grade.

Before I became a teacher, I worked in marketing for twelve years. After "retiring" to become a stay at home mom, I began subbing in Deacon's school and never looked back. I went back to school and obtained my teaching certification as fast as I could. I never imagined I would be following in the footsteps of so many other educators in my family, and yet, here I am, enjoying every minute.

I believe kids learn the most when they are having a good time. If you walked into my class on a typical day, you would see students collaborating, engaged in learning, and taking the lead in the discussions. We have a lot of fun and learn even more along the way. I'm a lifelong learner and hope to light the same fire for education in every one of my kids.

I promise to communicate regularly with you so when your child gets home every day, and you ask, "What did you do in class today? What did you learn today?" you will know the answer before it's even asked. I'm excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher!
