Mrs. Kasey Furlong
I have been teaching since 2013 and joined the Science department at Leyden in 2020. Before going into teaching, I worked for a couple of years at a flavor company helping to develop different flavors for a variety of consumer products. I enjoy teaching chemistry because of the uniformity of the periodic table and the ability to understand the complexities of nature due to the interactions of elements. I geek out to the amazing predictive properties of atoms and compounds.
Outside of school, my husband and I enjoying taking our daughter on family trips to our alma matre down in Champaign, IL. We also like to spend lots of time outdoors whether it be on nature walks through the forest preserves or at the lake. I am an avid reader but have also binged The Office probably close to 20 times through.
