Ms. Murphy


I am an ELD (English Language Development) teacher at Hailey Elementary.  I began teaching kidergarten at Hailey Elementary in 2007, then moved into first grade, and now am an ELD teacher.  Before coming to Idaho, I taught first grade in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I received my bachelor's degree from University of California, Berkeley and my teaching credential from San Francisco State University.  Since living in Idaho I have received an ENL (English as a New Language) endorsement from Boise State University and received a master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in Reading from the University of Kansas.  My husband and I moved to the Wood River Valley in 2003 and consider ourselves quite fortunate to live in this beautiful valley.  When I'm not teaching, I spend time hiking, traveling, and gardening.
