Teacher – Grades 4/5
Welcome to FEA! My name is Jeanne Ferrell. I graduated from CSUN with a degree in Kinesiology and did my graduate work for my Masters in Elementary Education at Grand Canyon University. While I have taught high school, middle school, and elementary school, I am very excited to be teaching 4th and 5th grade again this year.
I grew up in Anaheim, Ca, one of four girls, the daughter of teachers, and granddaughter of a teacher. I married my college sweetheart, and have been married for 30 years. We have two children and our daughter is carrying on the family legacy; she is also a teacher. My husband and I enjoy backpacking and playing USTA tennis. I really enjoy any day that I can be active and outdoors.
I appreciate working at small schools where I can spend quality time with individual students. I believe in challenging my students and knowing that they can succeed if given the chance. I believe in making my classroom a safe place where my students develop into independent learners who have a love of learning and are truly life-long learners.
