Welcome to Mrs. Furlong's 2nd through 6th Grade Math Site!

I'm so glad you've decided to click on by. Please explore the math resources! My goal is for students to understand the reason we need math in our lives, have them appreciate and enjoy math, and be critical thinkers and problem solvers. We are on our way!

A little about me...I have worked in the field of education for a long time. I never thought I wanted to be a teacher, but when I got my first degree in Wildlife Biology, I thought it would be neat to teach others about nature and science. I was a science and math teacher for 5th and 6th graders in NH for about ten years. I then went on to become a mathematics instructional coach, an assistant principal, and a principal. 

When we moved to Long Lake in 2022, I decided to go back to teaching since that's what I'm most passionate about in the field of education. My goal is to have students persevere in their problem solving in math class and see how that translates to the real world in order for them to be successful in their endeavors.
