Carissa Furspan

I am so excited to be part of the King community!

I most recently worked at A2 STEAM as a teacher clerk and the child care supervisor through Rec & Ed for the past five years. Prior to that I was living in Cleveland and worked with toddlers and pre-k children at the local YMCA before working as a lead teacher for a Head Start preschool program. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, so I am happily creating a home here with my husband (married August 2020) and our pitsky, Koda.

I have a BA in Sociology/Anthropology and Psychology from Ohio Wesleyan University. Learning about people, culture and the arts is a huge part of my life. I love to travel and explore new places!

When I am not at King, I will be outside adventuring in one of the many city parks with my husband and my dog (she loves her outdoor classroom)! I also have a passion for making custom, all-natural skin care products. I started my own business in the spring of 2019. My passions, my dog, and my family fill up most of my freetime outside of work.

I look forward to getting to know each student and their family as we venture into hybrid learning!
