Mrs. Kelli Furey
My first teaching experience was at 14 when I volunteered at a summer reading program helping second graders learn how to read. It was that experience that made me realize that working with kids is the most rewarding job there is. Providing students with a safe environment where they can be themselves, take risks, and learn how to succeed is my goal. I love seeing students make connections and get excited about learning. My passion is to help students find their confidence and develop a positive mindset.
I have taught at Summerwind for fourteen years. I have taught both 4th and 5th grade. Summerwind has become my second home. I have had the pleasure of teaching many siblings and have enjoyed getting to know so many families along the way. My certification is in Elementary Education, and I have a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.
As Boise natives, my husband and I enjoy snowboarding in the winter and dirt-biking the remainder of the year. We spend many of our summer weekends in Stanley, Idaho. We enjoy hiking and visiting Redfish Lake. I also enjoy spending time with my family, working out, dining out and cheering on the Seattle Seahawks. Two years ago, our whole world changed with the arrival of our son, Hudson. He is the light of our lives and brings so much joy to us every day.
