    My Classroom Mission

    As an effective teacher, my goal will be to motivate, challenge, and assist the students in my class in becoming engaged and self-motivated learners.  I look forward to a great year with you and your child as he or she grows.

    About Me

    Welcome to Troutman Elementary! My name is Ms. Ferrell and this is my sixth year at ISS and fifth year at Troutman Elementary.  I was born and raised in Geneva, New York and attended Buffalo State College for my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education/Special Education 1-6 with a concentration in Social Studies.  In May 2014 I graduated from The University of Albany with my Masters degree in Childhood Literacy and Reading (1-6). From 2011-2013 I taught 6th grade Reading, Science and Social Studies in NY before moving to NC.  

    Growing up I was active in competitive archery (I won the world title when I was 12), gymnastics and softball.  I coached little league softball and baseball throughout college and worked two part time jobs as well.  Today I am active in a co-ed softball league in Charlotte and Huntersville.  I love to go shopping, to the beach, lay by the pool during the summers and to be active outdoors.  I love to travel and have been on eight cruises to various locations in the Caribbean. In the summer of 2012 I went to Italy for a month to visit my sister and brother in-law and can’t wait to go back!
