Ms. Furuyama

Hello and welcome to the 2022/23 academic year! I am so excited to be working with you this year! This is my third year at PHS but my 15th year teaching in California. I hold two CA credentials: a single-subject English authorization and a multiple subject authorization. Most of my career has been devoted to working with high school students, but I have also taught middle school and adult ed. When I'm not hard at work teaching, I enjoy backpacking, canyoneering, and river rafting as well as photography and spending time with my animals and family.
