I’m Ms. Ferguson and I’ve taught sociology full-time for Cape Fear Community College since January 2009 and have been teaching part-time for various colleges since 2003. I am originally from Cincinnati and did my undergrad at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I then moved to northern California and completed my graduate degree at Humboldt State University. I have a master’s in sociology and a graduate certificate to teach at the college level. I have been fortunate to work in the field of sociology (beyond teaching) and have enjoyed the varied experiences this has offered me, such as working with Native American communities in California, impoverished youth of the Appalachians while living in Boone, and with local organizations attempting to reduce interpersonal violence in Wilmington.
