3rd Grade

Miss Taylor Furey

A NOTE FROM THE TEACHER

Welcome to 3rd Grade! My name is Taylor Furey and I am pleased to be your child’s teacher for the 2019-2020 school year! Third grade is such an awesome grade and I am so excited to start this journey.

This will be my first year teaching at St. Mark School and I am more than happy to be here. I’ve went to catholic school in the area my whole life. Within the past few months I’ve graduated from Kutztown University with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education! While I was at Kutztown University, I student taught in 3rd grade and loved every minute of it. In my spare time, I  love to spend time with my family, shop, and go on adventures with my friends! 3rd grade was my favorite grade as a student, so my goal for this year is to make the year just as special as mine was! I have lots of exciting plans for the 3rd graders this year and I cannot wait to get started very shortly.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email me at tfurey@stmarkmail.com.
