Mrs. Murphy

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Cara Murphy.  Although I'm not able to meet all of you in person yet, I am so very excited that you are a member of our Room 305 classroom family.  This will be my 7th year teaching at Stoneman and my 20th year teaching Elementary grades. 

I earned my Bachelor's degree from National University and my Teaching Credential from Cal State East Bay.  I also have my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Reading. I come from a family of educators (Grandmother, Dad, Mom, and sister).  I believe that education takes a village and I'm dedicated to the process.  I have high expectations and I'm devoted to helping your children meet their goals.  Communication, patience, and consistancy are my driving forces. 

I was born and raised in San Diego, but have lived in the Bay Area for 25+ years. My husband and I have a blended family with 6 children total.  I bring to our family a 27 year old daughter (2 granddaughters - 4 yrs old & 9 months old) and two sons aged 23 and 14. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, reading, cooking, and doing creative projects around my house in my spare time.  

A few of my favorites:

Colors: Blue and Grey

Food: Tortilla Soup w/ avocado

Drinks: Flavored teas and flavored sparkling water

Hobby: Crafting

Sweet Treat: Mangoes, Strawberry Starbursts, & York Peppermint Patties
