Hi! My name is Rebecca Russell and I am very excited to be your child's first grade teacher this year! This will be my fifth year at Ferguson Township Elementary School and my fourteenth year of teaching.I am originally from Ohio where I graduated from Muskingum University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. I earned my Master of Science degree in Educational Development and Strategies from Wilkes University in 2015. I currently reside in State College with my husband, Chris, and our children Hadley and Grayson. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, working out, watching sports, and learning new ways to become a better teacher.I am looking forward to meeting my students and can't wait to work alongside you in order to make this an incredible year for your first grader!Here's a recent picture of my family while at the beach this past summer!
Meet the Paraprofessional
Hi! My name is Jennifer Golaszewski, or Mrs. G, as the students call me. I am the classroom paraprofessional. This is my fifth year at Ferguson. I moved to State College in 2015 with my husband, Mark, and sons, Carter and Ethan. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family and my dogs, Zoe and Sophie. I'm looking forward to a great year!
