My name is Mike Ferch. I am a first year teacher at Rudd Rockford Marble-Rock. I teach High School Spanish I, Spanish II, Spanish III, Spanish IV, and Anatomy & Physiology.
I am married to Jamie, have a daughter named Mikayla (17) and a newborn daughter named Lochlyn (1 mo.) I graduated from Nora Springs - Rock Falls High School in January of 1995. By May of 1995, I had enrolled in the United States Marine Corps. Later in life, as a non-traditional college student, I attended NIACC where I received my AA in 2013. Afterward, I went to Waldorf University in Forest City, IA and graduated in December of 2016 with a BS degree in Secondary Education with endorsements in Biology and Chemistry and a minor in Spanish. I intend on pursuing my MA in Administration, eventually becoming a building Principal.
I believe in positive relationships with students, always having a smile and warm greeting, a firm handshake, and well communicated expectations. I believe that when my classroom expectations are articulately communicated, students naturally rise to the occasion. Finally, I believe that of all the things that are taught to students, the most important is how to be a productive, responsible citizen in society.
