Fellow Teachers Remember Former Teacher Killed In Fire

Molly Ferguson had been with the Chapel Hill ISD School District for nearly 40 years before she retired in 2000.  Wednesday Chapel Hill High School teachers and administrators remembered the former teacher.

"She was just the kindest, most considerate, most compassionate person, you know and i never will forget her," said Linda Horton.

Horton was a student of Molly's years ago and is now also a teacher at Chapel Hill High School. 

"She was a very strict disciplinary, but we loved her. She had a very caring heart and the students knew that," Linda said.

But more than that, she was a role model for not only her students, but also her fellow co-workers.

"Knowing her has helped me to be a better person.  I'll use her as an example, and I'll always remember her and cherish the memories we had together," said fellow teacher Tony Adams.

They said Molly went above and beyond as teacher, even opening her home to students in need.

"Her kids remembered her as somebody that cared about them, and cared about how they did and wanted them to have a better life," said Superintendent Joe Stubblefield.

Fellow educators said she was a true teacher's teacher, but above all, a friend.

"If everybody was like Molly, this world would be a great place," Linda said.

The district said it's in contact with Molly Ferguson's family to plan some sort of memorial at the school.
