Welcome to 4th grade Sienna Crossing Navigators! My name is Nancy Ferrara, and I am a proud member of the 4th grade team. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Elementary Education. A year later, I completed a Master’s degree specializing in Educational Technology. After that I went on to teach 4th grade in the state of Florida for 5 years. During this time, I also attended Florida Atlantic University, and in 2006 I graduated with a Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership.
During the next phase of my life, I took a break in my teaching career to attend to other important work. I became the mother of a beautiful girl named Ava in 2006, and shortly thereafter our family relocated from Fort Lauderdale to Houston. Two and half years later, my husband and I welcomed our son, Alex, into the world.
When my children began pre-school, I enjoyed four beautiful years as a pre-school teacher at a local church-based program. As my own children grew older, I was ready to go back to work full-time at our home school district, FBISD. I am a highly qualified teacher, and this is my sixth year teaching in our community of Sienna.
Movement has also always been a big part of my life. In the evenings I teach ballet, tap, and jazz at a local dance studio in Missouri City. I also love to go outside to get in a good run! Another fun fact about me is that my family is from Cuba. While I was born in the United States, I am fairly fluent in Spanish. I look forward to getting to know your families this year and building strong relationships together to support our kids.
