Cedarville University welcomes Lori Ferguson, M.S., to the faculty of the department of education. Ferguson will be serving as an instructor of education.
Ferguson earned her bachelor’s degree at Cedarville University and her master’s degree at the University of Dayton. She came back to teach at Cedarville because she enjoyed her time as a student and believes it is an excellent environment for her to impact her students using biblical truth. She also wanted to be part of Cedarville’s reputation of academic excellence.
Ferguson taught math to third-grade students for a year and eighth-grade students for seven years and is excited to share her teaching experience with college students. She enjoys math and enjoys imparting new and exciting methods of teaching to her students.
“I love being able to challenge these students to teach in such a way that produces ‘learners,’ not ‘answer-givers,’” described Ferguson.
Ferguson’s courses rigorously prepare students to make connections between the college classroom and real-world situations. Students will participate in associated clinical experiences in order to apply what they have learned in Ferguson’s class.
“I learned so much during my teaching that I cannot help but pass along that knowledge to these current students,” said Ferguson. “What a joy it is to see them learn and gain excitement for their future students.”
