Congratulations to Mrs. Beth Ferguson, the 2009 RES Teacher of the Year!
“Mrs. Ferguson exemplifies good teaching. She goes out of her way to reach every student, to make learning fun, and to push her students to new levels of success. She is an inspiration to her colleagues as well.” ~~Anne Keo, RES GIST Coordinator
“Mrs. Ferguson is a positive, dedicated teacher who provides memorable learning experiences for her students. She encourages family, school, and community members to always do their best.” ~~Susan Vaughan, RES Library-Media Specialist
“The intangibles that truly make a great educator are very evident in Beth Ferguson’s work at RES. The love for her students is the foremost virtue that enables her to make magic happen each day. She simply does what it takes to help the students learn. Beth’s love for the Goochland County community of people is just as noteworthy. I am truly amazed at how many activities that she is able to participate fully in while balancing a very busy home life and civic duty with the Volunteer Fire and Rescue unit. The other intangible that is unmatched is the level of energy and enthusiasm that is present in everything that Beth Ferguson sets out to accomplish.” ~~Stacey Austin, RES Principal
