ABOUT MRS. FUCHECK

  • Hello Parents and Students,

         I am very happy to be working with my fifth grade students and parents this year.  I am looking forward to an exciting year.  I've been a fifth grade teacher at Furnace Woods school for 22 years.  I consider Furnace Woods my home away from home with many wonderful friends.  

        My undergraduate degree is in elementary and special education with a minor in psychology.  I received my graduate degree from Fordham University with a specialization in reading.

         I have three children.  My daughter, Meggie, is a junior at Suny Cortland studying to be a high school math teacher.  My son Gregory is a senior and my son Tommy is a freshman at Hendrick Hudson High School.  My husband, Greg, worked in business for 15 years before changing careers and becoming a teacher.  He is currently the principal of a high school that he opened in the Bronx. 

         I am a Hen Hud graduate myself and I am proud to be living in this community with all of you.
