Welcome to our classroom!  I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade at Estes Hills again.  I believe that this school has great leadership and a strong teaching community that shares the goal of high achievement for all students.  I love the third grade curriculum, because we introduce several fundamental concepts that are the building blocks for their future learning.  This is an exciting year for your child!

I moved to North Carolina from California with my husband and two boys in 2004.  As much as I love my yearly trips to visit family in California, I am always happy to return to the Tar Heel State.  I especially enjoy the hiking and waterways that are found abundantly in our own backyards.  I also like to spend my spare time gardening (I have a second degree in Horticulture), attending my sons’ sporting events and reading books in my backyard.

My goal for this year is to build a learning community, where every child is challenged and every effort is rewarded.  I have high expectations for each student and will work with you, school staff and your child to accomplish our learning goals.  I believe in creating an open partnership with parents and look forward to meeting each of you.  

Please find my contact information below and do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.  Also, please follow our class on Twitter for classroom news (@teacherfurey).  I am looking forward to a rewarding and exciting school year!
