Message from Senator Addabbo

Hello to the entire P.S. 88Q family. It has been an honor to represent you as your State Senator. As a member of the Senate Education Committee, and a father of two children in the elementary public school system, I hold educational issues as a...

My name is Ms. Ferguson and I’m excited to be part of the P.S 88 community! I look forward to collaborating with you all! My philosophy in regard to education is that there is no such thing as one specific type of learner. Through many years of practice, I wholeheartedly feel that we all have unique needs and require supports to teach us in the ways in which we learn best as individuals. One way I achieve this is by providing multiple entry points for my students during lessons and small group work.

Being a Special Education teacher has provided me with a foundation of insight when it comes to counseling and my work as a LMHC (licensed mental health counselor). Nothing is more fulfilling than meeting the needs of my students and the individuals, especially children that I provide therapy for. To nourish the needs of my students, I use techniques and approaches from counseling in the classroom and vice versa. Building strong relationships and creating a safe and caring environment for my students and their families is extremely important and needed to further support a child’s academic and social-emotional journey.

I look forward to meeting everyone!

Wishing you all a successful school year! Warm Regards,

Ms. Ferguson
