Bill Ferguson Visits BCP Schools

Senator-elect Bill Ferguson visited three BCP schools this week: City Springs School, Hampstead Hill Academy, and Wolfe Street Academy.

At City Springs Senator-elect Ferguson met with parents, who shared their views on public education and their desire for a new sports field next to the school.

Bill Ferguson is the Senator-elect for Maryland’s 46th District. He is a teacher, a public servant, and a citizen of the 46th District. Senator-elect Ferguson came to work for Baltimore City Schools through Teach for America - Baltimore City.

He began his working life teaching U.S. history and U.S. government to ninth and tenth graders in a breakout academy of the old Southwestern High School, historically one of Baltimore’s most challenged high schools. While teaching, Senator-elect Ferguson also earned his Masters of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) from the Johns Hopkins School of Education in 2007.
