About Ms. Murphy

My name is Kait Murphy and I am excited to be your social studies teacher this year. I love history because it equips you to understand and maybe even solve the big problems of the world. I am originally from the South (mainly Texas, but a little bit of all over including Georgia and Mississippi, which is why my accent sounds funny sometimes). I moved to Chicago a few years ago to study and teach history. I live in Pilsen with my husband, who's an architect, and our two cat babies.
