Ferrara Named a Bright Light in Technology


High school technology teacher Jeremy Ferrara was recently honored with the Bright Light Award by Suffolk ASSET. Ferrara, who is in his second year in Deer Park, currently teaches robotics, metals and a World of Technology course. He is working to incorporate programming and modern engineering approaches into his curriculum, and is also in the process of rebuilding the district’s robotics program.  Students in his classes are expected to design solutions to solve problems.

“It is a pleasure to see someone so passionate about educating students on the practical uses of technology,” said Christopher Kauter, the district’s administrator of instructional technology. “Jeremy is focused on making an impact on the technology program in Deer Park.”

“We’re lucky to have a teacher like Jeremy in our technology department,” said David Knuffke, Deer Park’s curriculum associate for science and technology. “I’m excited about what he is doing for our students, and I can’t wait to see what he does next.”
