Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Emily Furbee
My name is Emily Harris Furbee, and I attended East Carolina University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Family and Community Services with a concentration in Child Development. I am currently pursuing my Elementary Education/Special Education teaching license.
I am excited about starting year 3 at Eastern Elementary in a new role! My first two years at EES I was a Teacher Assistant in Kindergarten and was voted Teacher Assistant of the Year, which is a huge honor! Now, I have transitioned into the role of EC Resource Teacher for Kindergarten. I have a background in ABA therapy and one-on-one instruction of students with Special Needs as well as with neurotypical children.
I love getting to work one-on-one and in small group settings with scholars where I can better individualize instruction to meet their needs. Seeing growth and a love of learning in my scholars is so rewarding! I love to learn and grow, both personally and professionally, so I am excited to grow through my new role.
