Tenth grader Nori Alexander says she nominated Ferguson because he helps her think deeply about her work.
"For instance when we do work in class and I say I got this and this is easy, he says it's deeper than that," says Alexander. "He makes me think and i like to be challenged."
Ferguson says he's been teaching for 12 years and is honored by this award.
"I love what these kids bring to me, they bring me joy," says Ferguson. "I'm glad I have something to give to them and the interchange between those two things is what gets me up everyday."
