Meet Ms. Murphy!
I've been teaching in Belle Plaine since 1993. I spent 21 years teaching 6th grade before becoming the Oak Crest Gifted and Talented Coordinator and Teacher. My favorite part of teaching students in the LEAP program is watching them persevere at tasks that are challenging and being able to witness the success they have when they both meet and exceed those challenges. I'm so lucky to be able to share in their love of learning and be a part of it! I received a BS degree in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota and a MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Scholastica. I've been married to Greg for 31 years and we have been pet parents for all of those years to both dogs and cats. We are currently parents to two cats, Maya and Chewie.
