Mrs. Murphy grew up in Pawnee Rock, KS. During her career as a teacher, Mrs. Murphy has taught kindergarten, first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades (but not all at once!) She can’t decide which class is her favorite, as she loves them all.

The reason she is a teacher is because she loves helping children reach their full potential!

You'd be surprised to know that...
Mrs. Murphy likes bugs - especially the praying mantis and the spider. She thinks God must have an amazing sense of humor!


Mrs. Murphy’s husband, Greg, is also a teacher. The Murphys have three children, Sam, a carpenter; Rachel, an aesthetician (you’ll have to ask Mrs. Murphy what that means); and Mary Jo, a social worker.
