                                                     MEET MISS MURPHY


    My name is Christin Murphy and I am so excited to introduce myself to you as the new 1st-grade teacher at Kyrene de las Manitas Elementary. I am eager to begin the 2020-2021 school year as this will be my second year with my own classroom! 

    I grew up in North Phoenix and spent 7 years in Flagstaff, AZ. I attended Northern Arizona University for my Bachelor's degree and spent my days in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-grade classrooms at Knoles Elementary. I also had the opportunity to spend a semester out in Leupp on the reservation in a 3rd-grade classroom. I moved back to the Phoenix area in December 2018 to complete my student teaching. I did my student teaching here at Manitas in a 1st-grade classroom! I instantly fell in love with the district and knew this is where I wanted to begin my career.  My first year of teaching happened at Estrella. I taught 1st grade there as well and loved every second of it. 

    Deciding to become a teacher was by far the easiest decision I have ever made!! I love children, and the 1st grade especially, this is my dream come true! This is such a huge growth year for your child and being able to assist in their growth is a great blessing. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you over the course of the school year!  

    My hobbies include; laying out by the pool with my toy chihuahua Ruby, going hiking, drinking Starbucks, shopping at Target, and completing Disney themed puzzles! 

      I hope that your time with me and in our classroom is filled with fun and engaging learning experiences for us all!    

    Again, welcome to OUR 1st-grade classroom!
