Becky Fergus

Hi! My name is Becky Fergus and the 2020/2021 school year will be my 5th at Riverwood Middle. Originally from Virginia Beach, VA, I moved to NC when I was in the 11th grade. I've always lived 'at the beach' until I decided to go to college at UNC-Asheville in the mountains. There, I met my husband and this year we celebrated our 20th anniversary.

We have two daughters that both attend Johnston County Career Technical & Leadership Academy (CTLA). Wren is an 11th grader there, and Mara is a 9th grader. They both love animals and (right now) we (only) have 2-dogs-Jersey & Jax, and  3-cats-Luna, Hazel, & Kitten (not my idea). 

When I am not in school, I enjoy playing sports and attending sporting events like baseball and hockey. I am an outdoors person, so I will always be that one teacher that heads outside on the nice days, or eats outside (if we ever have the chance!). 

I am hoping that eventually we will all be able to meet in person as I know this year contains an excellent group of students. When they were in 6th grade, I taught 6th grade Science, so I have a lot of them for Science for the 2nd time!  

If you or your student ever has any questions or concerns, I welcome them, or you to email me anytime, or give me a call. I will always be sure to return your email/call within 24-hrs. 

Here's to a great 8th grade year!!

Unless the remote learning period is extended beyond January 15th, students will return to the plan that they chose on the Second Semester Choice form on Tuesday, January 19.
