6th Grade Parents & Students,
Welcome back! My name is Jonathan Ferrell and I am a 6th grade teacher at Briarwood Elementary.
I grew up in Wichita, KS and was homeschooled K-12. I graduated from Kansas State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2006. In 2010 I graduated from Pittsburg State University with my master’s degree in Educational Technology.
This is my third year in the Shawnee Mission School District. Before arriving at Briarwood I had the privilege of teaching 6th grade at Pioneer Ridge Middle School in the Gardner Edgerton School District for seven years.
I am married to my beautiful wife Kristen who is a Nurse Practitioner at College Park Family Care. We have a five-year-old daughter named Annie who is a curious explorer of life, a little guy named Max who is two years old and as thick as a linebacker, and little Ruby who is four months old and cute as a button.
My goal in teaching is to nurture a love of learning in each student. Learning is fun. The process of uncovering and exploring our world is fascinating. I hope to ignite a passion for learning in each student that will last far beyond their time in my classroom.
Please feel free to contact me whenever the need arises – I am here to serve your student. I will strive to be proactive in communication with you about our classroom and the needs of your student.
Thank you for letting me introduce myself. I look forward to meeting each of you as we begin the school year. I am honored to have the privilege of leading your student on this exciting adventure in 6th grade!
