Welcome to ELL at Dominion Trail Elementary! My name is Laurie Ferguson. I graduated from James Madison University with a B.S. in Psychology and from Marymount University with an M.Ed. in Secondary Education. This is my fifteenth year of teaching and my ninth year teaching English Language Learners. Previously, I taught high school special education in both Loudoun and Fairfax counties. I am enjoying the curriculum of elementary school and ELL.
My students come to me with a wide range of experiences and abilities. I strive to make all of them feel comfortable and safe while learning a new language and culture. I believe that all students can be successful. It is my job as their teacher to help them find the avenue in which they learn best.
