What I Teach

Perseverance

Innovation

Kindness

Pride

Enthusiasm

“Hope is a function of struggle.”  

When we allow kids to struggle or fail, we allow them to have hope to try again despite challenges; and we give them a chance for true success.

When we let kids create, we allow them to problem solve.  Creativity through innovation helps motivate and energize a student to enhance not only his/her personal passion, but also their academic (and later professional) goals.  

“Kindness is seeing the best in others when they cannot see it in themselves.”  

When we teach kindness, we see a decline in bullying, teasing, and other hurtful behaviors; and an increase in humanity.  

Pride comes from having a sense of ownership in something.  

When we allow kids to have some control over their learning and that their ideas matter, they will start to have pride in their schoolwork, and themselves.

When we show kids that learning can be FUN, they are more willing to participate….and to take risks!  And having fun helps kids to retain information better.

I was born in Boise, Idaho and grew up here in Kuna. I earned my teaching degree at Boise State University. I earned my Master’s Degree in Integrating the Arts in the Curriculum in 2022. I have lived in Idaho almost my whole life. This is my fourteenth year of teaching. It is my tenth year teaching second grade.

I enjoy reading, camping, snowmobiling, hiking, and hunting. I love spending time with my family doing all of these things.

I have two children. My son Gauge is 8 years old. He loves wrestling and anything outdoors. My daughter Kimber is 6. She is very creative and loves anything crafty. I love spending time with them and watching them learn and grow.

Welcome to Mrs. Ferdinand’s Second Grade Classroom! I believe that having a strong partnership and open communication is the only way to success for your child. You play a vital part in your child’s education. I believe that all students can learn when they feel loved and we have a strong community within our classroom. Please feel free to reach out anytime with questions or concerns!
