All about Mrs. Furman

I have always had a passion for teaching ever since I was little. So after high school I attended Robert Morris University to receive a degree in Elementary Education. Throughout my time at Robert Morris I student taught at Brooks Elementary in Moon and even had the opportunity to teach in Philadelphia for two weeks. I graduated in 2007 and began substituting in many districts including Hopewell. During this time I had the opportunity to teach 5thgrade at a charter school but soon realized I wanted to further my education. In August of 2010, I decided to return to Robert Morris and study special education. I received my master’s degree in special education in May of 2011 and in July I had the pleasure of becoming an important part of the Hopewell Area School District. During the 2011-2012 school year. Currently, I am the life skills teacher and love it!
