Who's Mr. Fersch?


    Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Mr. Fersch.  I have been teaching for 14 years.  I first started as a substitute and then started teaching second grade in 2005.  I think second grade is a wonderful grade where children transition from learning to read to reading to learn! 

    I live here in Ballston Spa with my wife and our two children.



    Aside from teaching and being with my family, I love sports and the outdoors!  My favorite sport that I love to do is golf!  Also, reading is one thing I love to do everyday. Reading with my kids is always fun, and reading on my own is relaxing, rewarding, and exercise for my brain!


    My favorite sports teams are the New York Giants and Syracuse Orange.
