2018-2019 Administrative Responsibilities List
Welcome Mrs. Ferry as one of our New High School Administrators
I grew up in South Jersey and graduated from LaSalle University, in Philadelphia with a Bachelors in Secondary Education and Social Sciences. In 2005, I moved to Florida with my husband and began teaching World History at Gulf High School. The following year I began teaching Advanced Placement within the IB program. I have served as a PLC facilitator, World F.A.I.R. sponsor (a schoolwide fundraiser for international relief), National History Society sponsor, and AVID Content lead.
In 2016-2017, I was a finalist for Pasco County Teacher of the Year. The following year I applied and was accepted into the Gulf Coast Partnership Program where I served as the Administrative Intern at River Ridge Middle School. I recently graduated from the University of South Florida with a Masters in Educational Leadership. Personally, I have been married to my high school sweetheart for the last ten years. I have three small boys, ages 8, 5 & 3.
Congratulations to Mrs. Gricoski for becoming our one of our New High School Administrators!
I am very excited to be your new Assistant Principal at Cypress Creek starting this upcoming school year! I started working with Pasco County Schools in 1998 at Pine View Middle School, as an secretary in the guidance office. After becoming an instructional assistant in discipline at PVMS, I graduated with my Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2006 from Saint Leo University and transferred to a teaching position in November 2006. Throughout my experience as an educator, I have taught science, language arts, and math. I returned to Saint Leo for my Masters in Educational Leadership and graduated in 2011. I was accepted into Pasco County’s National Educator Program in 2016. In August 2017, I moved to Cypress Creek to teach math and was given the opportunity to be High School Athletic Director shortly after. Opening a new school has been a rewarding experience. I grew up in Tampa and moved to Land O’ Lakes in 1993. I have been married for 24 years and have three children, two girls and a boy. My two oldest daughters live in Tennessee and my son, the youngest, is about to graduate from Land O’ Lakes High School.

Join us for our Growler Awards
Join us on May 24th for our inaugural All-Sports Athletic Awards Celebration for all of our Middle and High School Sports programs. This is an awesome team event where we celebrate our athletes, coaches, and all of their athletic accomplishments this year at CCMHS. The event will be held on the Wesley Chapel High School campus. There will be light appetizers in the gym from 6:00pm until 6:30pm, and the awards ceremony will take place promptly at 6:30pm in the Center for the Performing Arts at Wesley Chapel High. We do ask that all athletes and coaches dress professionally for this prestigious event. Think of this as our Coyote “ESPY” Awards!

Trauma Informed Care Book Study Extension
Coyote Nation team members, in our efforts to build a rock-solid foundation grounded in a growth mindset, working as a community, and leading responsibly, Mrs. Hetzler-Nettles has kindly agreed to extend the deadline for our Trauma Informed Book Study. She recognizes that everyone has a lot on their plates right now and how much staff members want to deeply engage with the insights in the book. To give you all more time to own your education and create meaning when responding to prompts on our Canvas course you may have until the end of July to complete the course. Those who wish to Tweet-up instead of the full Canvas experience please email me so I can contact you in June and July to Tweet-up.
Trauma informed Care is important enough to us to do it right. We are dedicated to our success, even if it means one small step a time.
