Welcome to Mathematics and Science
with Mrs. Murphy
Here is a little bit about me. This is my sixth year teaching in Candia, and fifth year teaching 6th Grade. I love 6th Grade Math and Science because there are so many real-world connections! We get to study things like percents, ratios, area and volume of shapes. With our new IQWST Science Curriculum, we are so lucky to be able to delve into modeling, inquiry-based projects, and meaningful discussions.
My husband, Sean, is studying to be an engineer. We love going to the lake, hanging out with our dog, Biggie, and spending time with family and friends. During the school year I coach Track and Field and love being a Student Council Advisor!
My Educational Philosophy:
As an educator, my philosophy revolves around believing in my students. Believing they can achieve anything. Knowing that every day, (sometimes every few minutes!) can be a clean slate, and a chance to try again. I am a growth mindset proponent, and I firmly believe that if you put your mind to something, and work hard, you can learn anything. Reading Carol Dweck's book, Mindset, changed my life both in and out of the classroom. I believe that a person's potential is limitless, and that I, and my students, can learn ANYTHING. I also believe that students need to be engaged in their learning, feel safe taking risks in the classroom, and be comfortable asking for help when needed. I view myself as a facilitator, and enjoy being part of a student-driven environment with clear expectations, goals, and measurable objectives.
