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