Ms. Melissa Murphy
Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Ms. Murphy and I am thrilled to be your teacher this year. It's going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning and new adventures. Just figuring out how to manage virtual learning is an adventure. I will get to know each and every one of you, but first I will tell you a little bit about myself.
I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington University and worked for a fortune 500 company here in St. Louis. Then, I created my own business helping people with legal documents. Next, I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Missouri Baptist Univeristy after which I began my teaching career in the Normandy School District and now I am lucky enough to teach in St. Louis Public Schools. I have taught every grade from first to sixth, but the best of all is second grade! Having experience in all these grade levels will really help me challenge you to reach for the stars this year.
This is going to be fantastic school year. I am so excited to be your teacher and for you to be part of this awesome all star class we have line up for this year. While we will begin virtually, we will be together building our class community learning and growing just like we do in our classroom. Hopefully, we will be face to face in our classroom soon. Until then, I promise to always be just a call, text, or email away and I want you to promise to always try and do your best.♥
