Mrs. Laura Furman

Fifth Grade Language Arts

I am the language arts teacher for the fifth grade team.  I attended Kutztown University for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees.  My Bachelor’s Degree is in Elementary Education with a concentration in reading, and my Master’s Degree is in Education with a Reading Specialist Certification.

I previously taught 7th grade language arts from 2008-2012 and 6th grade social studies in 2013 at Southern Middle School in the Reading School District.  In the fall of 2013, I taught 3rd grade at Sacred Heart School in West Reading.  I also taught 5th grade in the Exeter Township School District from 2016-2017.  Two years ago I joined the Brandywine family where I was a Title I Reading Specialist for the Elementary and Intermediate schools.  Last year, I was the English teacher in 6th grade at the middle school.

Along with parents and my team of teachers, I look forward to helping the students become lifelong successful writers.
