About Me

Educational History:

  • I graduated from Huntsville High School in 2003.  
  • I went to college at Northwest Arkansas Community College, Harding University, and Arkansas State University

Degrees and Certifications:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Mid-Level Education
  • Master of Science in Education Educational Leadership

Professional Development:

  • I have really enjoyed getting to go to Model school for the past couple of years.
  • Solution tree conferences have helped me focus on building a culture of collaboration.

Current Position:

This is my third year teaching in the Huntsville School District.  My first year here, I taught 5th-grade math at the intermediate school.  The following year, I was fortunate enough to move up to assistant principal at the middle school.  Then, this year, I was able to move into the principal position.

Previous Position:

My teaching career before coming to Huntsville involved being a teacher and a coach.  I have taught Math, Science, Health, P.E., and Outdoor Education.  I have also been a head junior high football and head wrestling coach.

Before getting into the field of education, I worked as an electrician and was able to earn my journeyman’s license for that.  My experiences in construction work taught me a lot about building relationships with different types of people.  It also helped me learn to be a leader as I had to manage several jobs.

Both of my work experiences have helped me grow tremendously as a person.  I want to take what I’ve learned and help students be successful at whatever they choose to do.

Family Information:

I got married to Megan Trinkle Ferguson in 2005.  We have had 3 wonderful children together.  They all go to school here at Huntsville.  Our oldest daughter Makaya is 11 years old and going into the 6th grade, our middle son Crue is 8 years old and going into 3rd grade, and our youngest daughter Zoey is 4 years old and going into Pre-K this year.  We also have a dog that is a cocker spaniel.

Personal Information:

When I’m not working at the school, I love to go fishing.  I mostly bass fish on Beaver Lake and Table Rock Lake.  I also enjoy canoeing, camping, and hunting.  My favorite sports are football, wrestling, and baseball.
