Mrs. Miranda Murphy
My name is Miranda Murphy, and I will be teaching sixth and seventh grade English this year. This will be my first full year, but I've taught previously during two maternity leaves. I taught eighth grade English during the first semester at Liberty Middle School last year. I'm from Huntsville, but now live and have a fondness for Madison. I attended The University of Alabama and graduated in 2012 with my bachelor's degree in journalism. I worked as a sports reporter in South Alabama until deciding I wanted to become a teacher. I moved home to North Alabama to attend The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). I graduated with my master's degree in teaching in 2017.
I married my best friend in 2017. My husband attended Liberty Middle School and shared his love of Madison City with me. Our daughter arrived in December of 2018. She has a fur sister and brother who are named after my favorite hockey player, Alex Ovechkin.
I love hockey! If you didn't know, Huntsville is the hockey capital of the South. While I always cheer for the Southern hockey teams, my favorite team of any sport is the Washington Capitals.
This year is going to be great! I'm excited to get to know each and every one of my students!
