Science by Murphy

A little bit about Ms. Murphy...

She is a native Austinite and graduated from McCallum High School where she was an active member of band, marching band, volleyball and the national honor society. Upon graduating, she moved all the way to Florida to attend Eckerd College in St. Petersburg where she studied marine science and environmental studies. While at Eckerd Ms. Murphy was blessed to be able to travel to Bimini, Bahamas to visit the Bimini Biological Field Station to study sharks. She also was able to go to Ecuador and the Galapagos to observe the country's rich natural history and her final adventure at Eckerd was a trip to Havana, Cuba to create relationships with local organizations focused on service work. After graduating college and working in Florida it was time to move back to the great state of Texas and began her teaching career at Rouse HS in Leander. After 5 years at Rouse she decided to become a Spartan here at St. Stephen's Episcopal School. She has taught Physics, Biology, AP Environmental Science and Principles of Biomedical Science. She is looking forward to another great year!
