Ms. Murphy was born in May and her hometown is Brockton, MA. She went to college at University of Notre Dame (BS in Math) and Simmons College (Masters in Teaching Math).
Favorite teacher? My 3rd grade teacher Ms Howe. She made learning fun.
If you were not in education what other profession would you like to attempt? In the 4th grade I wanted to be an astronaut, but then I realized I didn't like heights. In the 6th grade I wanted to be an archeologist, but then remembered I don't like to get dirty. In the 7th grade I decided to follow in my mom’s footsteps and become a math teacher. I wouldn't do anything else.
Do you have pets? no, I have 3 children.
Favorite Color? Blue
Favorite Quote or Saying? The only way to learn math is to do math.
Where is the farthest place you have ever traveled? After college I backpacked through Europe starting in Greece and ending in England. But the furthest I've been is Bora Bora on my honeymoon.
Favorite Food? I could eat Steak every day!
Hobbies or Activities/Organizations you are active in? I enjoy traveling, swimming, golf, and watching Marvel superhero movies. :)
