Local Teacher Opens Education Store

Local Teacher Opens Education Store

Adam Funtleyder is a teacher at PS 225 in Rockaway Beach. His wife, Diana, is the head of the Life Center at the High School Redirection in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Both are long-time Rockaway residents.

"I love education, but I’ve always had an interest in business," Funtleyder told The Wave. "I saw a need for a teacher store that would serve parents as well right here in Rockaway and I put the two interests together."

On Saturday, November 23, Funtleyder and his wife will see the fruition of those two interests. They will open their "Busy Bee Learning Store" at 111-14 Rockaway Beach Boulevard in Rockaway Beach.

According to Funtleyder, the store will carry a full line of educational supplies, teacher material, student learning aides, educational toys, games, music and art supplies.

"Our motto is, All Your Educational Means, From Tots To Teens," Funtleyder said.

The store will be open from noon until "late in the evening" during the week and during regular hours on the weekends.
