Mr. Ferguson was a spectacular teacher. I barely passed his class back in 2006, skipped school a lot, but the life lessons he provided were invaluable. I remember him saying that the key to being charismatic was to ask people about themselves. People love to talk about themselves, and if you create an open invitation to that with an air of genuine interest, you'll instantly appear charismatic. His words come to mind constantly when I want to make a good impression, and they've never failed me.

I love the fact that he cares and brings history alive. I had him for a teacher in 1989 and still remember facts.

Go back before you graduate and get your folders. Definitely do the reviews. Though he complains if you manage to get a 100 on the second final because then he has to change the test.

Best teacher at CHS. Loved his stories and his view on the world was great. Extremely knowledgeable, always willing for a debate or discussion. His honors class killed me, but the A was worth it.

Mr. Ferguson was a great teacher. He was really knowledgeable about his subject and even answered questions about other subjects. His class was challenging, but he really prepared us for college level history classes. He didn't assign any busy work or unnecessary assignments, but you better complete your study guide. You have to actually read the textbook to pass this class-- a first for me. I passed with an A, but it was not without work. Plus, he genuinely cared about and respected students' rights.

Although a staunch democrat and an atheist as well, (all proclaimed on the second day too) I can say that its been one of the best classes I've taken. He has stories of history no book will tell.

Ferguson has a way of helping you WANT to study history. Everything I've learned in his class has stuck with me, as opposed to most other history classes. I cried the day I graduated from his class.
