Meet Mrs. Furman, your Librarian:

Mrs. Furman

I am delighted to be the Library Media Specialist at Parkview Elementary School. I spend my days looking for ways to get good literature into the hands of our students and helping them to stay curious and connected. I teach reading engagement, media literacy, and research skills to students Pre-k through 5th grade. My background includes 10 years of teaching 4th grade and 4 years of teaching kindergarten. The library doors are always open so stop in to say hello, search the catalog, surf the internet, trade book recommendations, or simply to enjoy a peaceful space.
