Hello, my name is Catherine Fergusson and I am very excited to be teaching at Lake Shore High School this year. This will be my fifth year teaching and first year at Lake Shore High School. I will be teaching Chemistry and AP Biology this year.
I will post a majority of the assignments to my website and I post a daily agenda to the calendar page.
In years past I have taught a wide variety of courses including AP Government, AP Psychology, Psychology, Honors Chemistry, Chemistry, and Physics.
I graduated from Grand Valley State University in April of 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Studies. I minored in Political Science and Chemistry. Since graduating I have continued to develop as a teacher by earning additional endorsements in Psychology and Integrated Science. I am currently working on my master's degree in American History and Government.
To some, the wide variety of disciplines that I teach may seem rather odd, but to me like can't be narrowly defined into single subject areas. We are all connected in the great circle of academia. I strive to make all of my lessons interconnected with other academic disclpines.
I am an avid reader, my favorite book of all time being Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and I enjoy watching movies and TV. I am also a dancer and I enjoy taking classes in ballet and tap.
