Jay Fuhrman graduated from St. Lawrence in 2014. He studied Philosophy with minors in English and Spanish and was an ITAP apprentice throughout the 2014-15 school year. During the spring semester of his junior year, Jay participated in SLU’s off campus program in Madrid, Spain. Passionate about travel, the outdoors, and working with kids, Jay spent summer of 2014 leading a group of high school students on a bike tour down the west coast and looks forward to leading another one in 2015.
Currently, Jay is a co-teacher at the Greenwich Country Day School in Connecticut. He strives to implement various learning technologies in his teaching regularly and draws on his experience from the ITAP program. Some of his (and his students’) favorite lessons are those that incorporate iPads and computer programs such as BeeBot and Scratch. He hopes to continue cultivating his interest in educational technology as he progresses in his career and potentially graduate school.
