Mr. Eric LeFurge
Greetings Gator Nation!
I'm Mr. LeFurge and I am incredibly excited about the school year! I was born in Seoul, Korea and was adopted when I was 4 months old. I grew up in the small town of Chelsea, Michigan, (which is 15 minutes west of the University of Michigan). Teaching is something that I have always wanted to do since I was young. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 2000 with a degree in Elementary Education, focusing on math and physics. I obtained my Graduate degree in Instructional Technology in 2014 from East Carolina University.
This will be my 23rd year teaching. I taught middle school for the first 5 years before moving to Jacksonville, NC. I taught 13 years in Onslow County before I moved to Duplin County for 2 years and Craven County for 1 year. I returned to Onslow County last year, hopefully, to finish out my teaching career.
I have been married for 22 years and my wife and I have 2 children. My wife is also a teacher, currently working at Living Water Christian Academy. My son will be an 8th grader at New Bridge Middle and my daughter will be a 6th grader at New Bridge as well. When I'm not teaching, you can probably find me on the soccer field. I retired for a 3rd time from coaching soccer this past year and decided it was time to enjoy watching my son play. I am a Garfield freak! You will see lots of Garfield around my classroom. I also love penguins! I know this is going to be a great year!!! If you have any questions or thoughts, please don't hesitate to contact me!
