★ Welcome


        My name is Phyllis Murk and I teach first grade at William G. Mather Elementary School.  My main goals in teaching are for my students to feel successful in what they do and to LOVE learning.  I am looking forward to a great year of fun and adventure in learning together with my students and parents!
