Dr. Michael Ferry

Welcome to the exciting and sometimes nerve racking world of Driver Education.  I am excited for a new school year and a new group of young adults.  Driving is a lifelong activity and something I take seriously as one day the young adults I will be teaching will be sharing the road with me and my family.

A little about me:

I have had the privilege of coaching and teaching in the Smiths Station community for the last 13 years.  I started in 2006 teaching Physical Education at Smiths Station Elementary, now known as East Smiths Station Elementary.  I spent 7 great years there as part of a special group of teachers and administrators.

In 2014 I had the privilege of being named the Head Baseball Coach and moved to the High School to teach Driver Education.  It was a fun transition and has been 6 years of great experiences, and some that raised my blood pressure.  I enjoy being part of a process that students really look forward to (getting their license and gaining independence and freedom).

I grew up in Tuscaloosa Alabama and attended Tuscaloosa Central High School.  I played 3 sports in high school and was fortunate that it led to an athletic scholarship to play baseball at Auburn University.  One of the best decisions I ever made.  Again I was fortunate to be good enough to be drafted in the 4th round of the MLB draft after my junior year and signed a professional contract to play with the Cincinnati Reds organization in 1990.  I Spent the next 6 years doing that while also trying to finish my education.

I have been married to my wife Cindy for 25 years.  We have 2 awesome children who are now in college (Ryan 22, and Tatum 20)
