Jonathon Fernow is the Director of the Oregon Migrant Education Service Center, Willamette ESD. The Oregon Migrant Education Service Center trains Title 1C migrant staff around the state to provide the latest and best professional development, support so that they can meet the needs of migrant students in Oregon. He brings over two decades of experience in Migrant Education at the state level.
While he doesn’t have “one big dream” for education, he does want to ensure that all students have the resources they need to be successful, no matter where they come from. One of Jonathon’s priorities is making sure that Oregon is able to support migrant students by increasing support for indigenous families that come from Central America, including students who have never attended school before.
