• Welcome to the English Language Department 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.    I started teaching at Dominion Trail in 2006. Previously, I taught high school special education in both Loudoun and Fairfax counties. I am enjoying the curriculum of elementary school and ELL.  All of our students are so diverse.   I really enjoy learning about their cultures and traditions.  

    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.
