Tara Furr

Bonjour!  My name is Tara Furr, or to my students, Madame.

I began my teaching career 24 years ago in neighboring Stanly County.   This year it is a privilege to be in my 14th year teaching in Tiger Territory!  As a former graduate of the “old” MPHS, I'm a true tiger at heart!
I first fell in love with the French language in  high school.  It was then that I took my first trip abroad to explore the country that I’d learned to love.  While pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in French at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte I participated in an exchange program to the University of Limoges in Limoges, France.  I have led several student tours throughout France, most recently in July ’16.  Unfortunately our student trip for 2021 will not be possible due to COVID, but hopefully, we will be able to make travel plans again in the near future.
Away from school, I spend most of my time with my family - my husband and 2 sons!  Together we enjoy the great outdoors (hunting, fishing, swimming, gardening & playing ball), spending time with family & friends, and participating in church & community activities.
I am looking forward to a great semester!  Allons, tigres! (Let's go, Tigers!) Vive les tigres! (Long live the Tigers!)
