Hi, my name is Kate Furjes and welcome to our Kindergarten classroom! I am looking forward to a school year full of fun learning activities and experiences and I am so excited to be your Kindergarten teacher this school year!
A little bit more about me... I grew up attending University City Schools here in St. Louis. I began my teaching career in 2007. I attended Webster University for my undergraduate and graduate studies, where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree and Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught in both Kindergarten and Second Grade, but Kindergarten is by far my favorite!
When I am not teaching, I really enjoy spending time with my husband, son, daughter and stepdaughters at home. Here are a few other fun facts about me:
- My favorite colors are teal, pink and white.
- My favorite number is 8.
- I have two brothers, and one sister.
- I am the third child in my family.
- I enjoy being with my big family. (I am one of 23 grandchildren!)
- My favorite sports teams are the St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas Jayhawks.
- My favorite places to shop are Target and Amazon.
- I enjoy eating at St. Louis Bread Company (Panera).
- I LOVE drinking coffee. :)
Thanks for visiting!
