Mrs. Murphy attended the Hellenic American Academy when she was young and has many fond memories of the teachers and programs. Her three children, George, Christa and Vasia, also attended the HAA and have their own fond memories of their teachers and programs here at the Academy. In her previous work at the Academy since 2000, she served as a second grade teacher, fourth grade teacher and preschool teacher, where she was responsible for assisting in the establishment of the Academy’s current Preschool program. Mrs. Murphy has a degree from Lesley University in Human Development and Elementary Education. She received her Master's Degree from University of Lowell in 2005 in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Science Education. Her love of students and passionate teaching of the school's mission in preserving and passing on our Greek language, culture and Greek Orthodox religion is evident in her classroom. Her high standards and expectations of her students are enriched because she is able to bring into the classroom theGreek and English connections in all academic areas. She truly loves our Academy and enjoys working here.
