Ms. Murphy


I am so fortunate to be a teacher at this fantastic elementary school.  I began teaching kindergarten at Hailey Elementary, and then moved to first grade nine years ago.  Before coming to Idaho I had been a first grade teacher 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 17 years ago and consider ourselves quite fortunate to live in this beautiful valley.  When I'm not teaching, I spend time hiking, swimming, and gardening.
