In 2001, Ferrer returned to the States and continued teaching science and math at Napa High School and then in 2002 she became their Guidance Counselor. Ferrer moved on to other districts serving high school and middle school students as an Intervention Counselor and an Assistant Principal, before coming to CCLA.
