School Counselor Bios:



Ms. Ferguson: 
Hola! Bonjour! Hello! It is wonderful to be here at Port Allegany High School. I am a graduate of Bradford Area High School, and received my B.A. in English from Penn State University. I then went on to graduate from Duquesne University with a Master of Science in Education in School Counseling. I believe that every student is capable of being successful, and am proud to work in a field where I can be of assistance.  


Mr. Riley: 

Hello.  A little bit about myself:  I graduated from St. Bonaventure University with a bachelor's degree in history and, after working for 11 years with ADAS, I was hired to teach social studies at PAHS.  I pursued a graduate degree, also from St. Bonaventure, in school counseling, completing that in 2000.  After 17 years of teaching, I decided to make the switch to the School Counseling Office.  I continue to teach Psychology I & II, which is a dual-enrollment course.  I'm looking forward to working with students in a different aspect of the educational process.
