Hello! I am Mr. Furey, and I am joining John Handley High School this school year. I teach World History I and World History I Honors. Though I am new to Handley, this will be my 8th year teaching. I grew up in Northern Virginia and attended Northern Virginia Community College and George Mason University for my undergraduate degree in History and returned to GMU for my master's in Education. I am so excited to guide students through the complex human story, to help them develop their voice, and to learn and practice the skills necessary to express themselves with confidence and the support of evidence.
Outside of school, my main hobbies are weightlifting, mountain biking, video gaming, and reading. My wife and I are expecting our first child, Saoirse, this fall. We also have two cats, Mina & Nori.
