Mrs. Linda Ferguson

4th Grade Teacher

Just as Jesus asked the apostles to make disciples of all nations, He commissions each of us to be his witness in today’s world. Teaching in a Catholic school allows me this opportunity. Each time I pray with my class, share the community of the Mass, or just invoke the name of Jesus with my students, I am fulfilling the mission I received at Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. God gave each of us a vocation in life. What a wonderful setting a Catholic School is to fulfill a vocation. Not only do I get to enjoy seeing students grasp new concepts in academics, but I also get to share in their spiritual lives as well as they accept their roles as disciples of Jesus. The personal closeness and togetherness of a Catholic school can not be found in any other school setting. Teaching in a Catholic school is a privilege and a blessing I wouldn’t change.
