Miss Coach Abby Furlong
Miss Coach Abby Furlong here! I cannot wait to meet all my Jaguars this year! I'm Miss Furlong (but some students call me Coach Furlong or Coach Abby) and I will be your Physical Education teacher this school year! This is my 2nd year being the Phy Ed teacher here at JAJ but I have worked in the building now for 6 years. I previously was a Playworks recess coach at JAJ for 2 years and then was a TA in the gym and Kindergarten for 2 years.
I graduated from Bethel University with a degree on Educational Studies with Physical Education emphasis. I went back to school through TeachNow to get my Phy Ed and Health student teaching done which I did here at JAJ 4 years ago.
When I'm not at JAJ you can find me in the summer working on my garden, kayaking out on the lake and finding a good book series to read outside in my hammock. In the fall I love watching vikings games, working out at the gym and hiking at the pumpkin patch. In the winter I love cross country skiing, ice skating and playing video games. Finally in the spring you will find me coaching high school track and field and playing soccer. I love all areas of sports and physical activity and cannot wait to get started!
I love being apart of the JAJ family and community and I hope you do too!
