raymond ferraro

Ray Ferraro has been an employee of the Bergen County Technical Schools District since September 1, 1978 on a satellite campus in an old factory in Mahwah; a career that spans over forty years. To put this in historical context, Ray’s career in education began the same year that the newly launched Ford Fairmont became the bestselling new car ever introduced.  Fortunately for Ray, his career had more staying power than the Fairmont.

In 1981, Ray joined the Bergen County Technical High School Paramus Campus and remained there until he began his career in Teterboro in 1999. Ray has been an integral part of the school’s transition from a traditional Automotive Program in 2006–07 to the nation’s only Automotive Engineering & Design program at the high school level. He is an individual who is always willing to do anything that is asked of him.

Over the last forty years, Ray has taught automotive to hundreds, if not thousands, of students throughout Bergen County. He is a caring, hard-working, and genuine individual who always has a genuine smile on his face. Ray is dedicated and committed to ensuring that educational opportunities exist for all. He is passionate about his love of cars, and more importantly, meeting the needs of all of his students.

Ray is an integral part of the Teterboro community, and we will all miss seeing his suspenders on a daily basis. We wish him well in his retirement. The BCTS Board of Education and administration wish Ray the best of health, happiness and a relaxing future as he begins his new journey.
