A Note From Mrs. Fuhrman

As a social studies teacher and internship coordinator, I prepare my students for what's next. Instead of asking students what they want to be when they grow up, I prefer to ask them, "What problems do you want to solve?"


As the school's Communications Manager, I can teach a whole new audience about a subject close to my heart - Delone Catholic High School.
