Carissa Ferrugia


This is my first year at Camden High School and I am very excited to be part of the Bulldog family!! I grew up in Livingston, New Jersey and was brought to North Carolina with my dad's job. I graduated from Meredith College with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. Before venturing into education, I worked in research and restaurant industries. I received my Masters in Education (MEd) in Curriculum and Science and another Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. 

I have an amazing daughter, Leia, who is a senior at Dutch Fork High School. When I'm not with the Bulldogs, I am at MUV Fitness or at home relaxing with my family. This is my 11th year teaching science and I teach Biology and Physics this year. I love teaching and I want all of my students to find a love for science and understand the natural processes of the Universe, Earth and all of life.
