In her own words, "I am motivated to work with students each day because I find it rewarding to help them realize their self worth and how they can strive to be productive citizens within our society. I enjoy working with students at 21st Century in helping them to take ownership in their educational paths. I am most happy when students show academic growth."
Ms. Ferrin has been licensed with the Department Of Children and Family Services since 2002, mentoring Trauma Exposed Children.
I also enjoy working each summer with Summer Advantage USA, a Learn and Earn Program, a summer youth development program sponsored by Earl Martin Phalen a social entrepreneur and a educational reformer joined with The Chicago Housing Authority.
I find that working with children is most fulfilling and rewarding. I enjoy spending time mentoring children with special needs.
