Mrs. Murphy

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page! Here is a little bit about me!

I am living my dream!  Ever since I was in sixth grade, I wanted to be a teacher!!  Working full-time in the military, it took me 13 years to get my degree, but I fiinally graduated in 2016 from Old Dominion University in Virginia with a Master’s degree in Elementary Education.  I retired from the United States Air Force in October 2016, after 20 years of service as a Medical Logistics Supervisor.  I am blessed to have been able to serve my country. I have traveled to over 20 countries and I am not done yet!

I am married to my husband Ryan and a mother to four children: Naomi-22, Joshua-20, Emelia-15, and Madison-13. I also have two cats named Tessa and Max and two German Shepherds named Maikoh and Bear. After I retired, we moved to Port Charlotte; which was about three years ago. I was born in Falls Church, Virginia; however I grew up in New England. I lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maine, but I call Maine home. I love the mountains and the beach. One day I will buy a cabin in the mountains and call that my forever home.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Food: Indian, Greek, Mexican

Drink: Coffee or Iced Tea

Color: Yellow and Pink

Book: The Bible

Season: Autumn

Sport: Football- Patriots!!

Animal: Manatees/Sea Turtles

Hobby: Spending time with my family, playing games, being outside, crafts

Personal Mission Statement

  • To provide students with the best possible educational experience that teaches them how to be respectful, kind, and in charge of their own future! They will be given the tools to be successful and most importantly- how to be a positive leader. My classroom will always be a loving, caring, and safe environment where diversity is encouraged and celebrated! Using a growth mindset, we will always do our best and learn to work through the challenges to achieve our goals.


  • If you are out of school due to the 14-day absence rule for COVID-19, please be sure to look on my Assignments Page. You will find all the work required to be completed while your child is absent. Per our District Guidelines, students have 2 days to make up work for each day absent. Your child will have 28 days to submit all make up work. Work will be graded and cannot be excused. Any missing work will be requested and then the appropriate grade will be assigned. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
