Meet the 4th Grade Teachers

4A   Hello! My name is Lori Ferren and I have taught at RSD since 2006. I have a Bachelor's as well as Master’s Degree from ATU. My husband John and I have two children and have lived in Russellville since 1998. We love music as well as traveling. Our family favorite is Disney World.

4B   Hello! My name is Ashley Vinson. 2019 - 2020 will be my first year of teaching. I earned my Bachelors Degree at Arkansas Tech University. My family and I live right here in Russellville. We love our community and I am so excited to serve the students at Center Valley Elementary. My husband Jered and I have a four (almost five) year old daughter. It’s going to be an amazing year! Go Cougars!

Hello, my name is Mrs. Buford, and I am the teacher in 4D. I started teaching in 2015 after graduating from Arkansas Tech University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I absolutely love teaching at Center Valley Elementary! My husband Charley and I have a daughter named Nora who was born in October of 2016. I am a member of Victory Missionary Baptist Church where I serve as an Awana leader. It is my goal to help my students become the best leaders, thinkers, and students they can be. My students and I work together to be examples for the rest of the school because my students are officially the oldest in the building. I can't wait to have another great year full of fun and learning!
