I have been employed in the Calhoun County School District as a teacher at the Calhoun County High School for 21 years. I have taught Biology, Chemistry, and Physical Science, and currently teach the Project Lead the Way pre-engineering curriculum. I am married to Anita Anderson Fersner who is a math teacher from St. Matthews K-8 and we are the proud parents of Candace, Keri, and Alvin Seth.  I enjoy spending time with family, singing, grilling, gardening, fishing, working on small building projects, and exploring my creativity with music production. I am a deacon at the Bull Swamp Baptist Church. “As an individual, I have come to know that I have learned many things by doing. So as a teacher, I try to provide students with as many opportunities to have authentic learning experiences. Students in my classes are actively engaged through activity based and project based learning experiences that encourage them to use the design process to solve problems.” Mr. Fersner believes that Everyone has Purpose, Everyone Deserves Respect, Everyone is Significant and Everyone is Gifted.
