Athletics Vice Principal, Jeff Ferrin
Teacher claims Palmdale school board violated Brown Act | The Antelope Valley Times
At a meeting of the Palmdale School Board on July 16, 2013, Jeff Ferrin, Palmdale School District Board Member, arrogantly admitted to the board's having secretly met in closed session "for seven months.
I would think that an investigation would involve interviews with me, Mr. Estrada, Mr. Ferrin, Ms. Corrales, and the other board members, at a minimum.
Jeffrey Ferrin knows a lot about curriculum. After all, he has a master's degree in Curriculum Instruction and School Administration and has been teaching for the past 16 years. But, it wasn't until he enrolled in UCR Extension's CLAD Through CTEL (Cross-Cultural English and Academic Development through California Teachers of English Learners) certificate program that he learned how to address the specific needs of his students, who were learning English. Ferrin said the program helped him improve his teaching and rekindled his passion for writing curriculum. Before, he relied on standard curriculum provided by the district. Now, he writes his own additional lessons tailored to his student's needs, making them more effective for those who are learning English. "As a result, the students seem happier, their grades are better and they are more involved," said Ferrin, who runs a program for at-risk students in the Antelope Valley Union High School District. Ferrin is also a member of the Palmdale School District Board of Trustees.
