Hello, my name is Stacy Murphy and this is my first year teaching at Benhaven Elementary School. I was born and raised in northwestern New Jersey. I earned a Bachelor's Degree from Berkeley College in NJ and later, a Master's Degree from Long Island University in NY. My 12 years of teaching experience were in New York and New Jersey. Eight, of those wonderful years, were in kindergarten!
Over the years, many things have evolved and changed. What has remained constant is my passion for teaching and my love of learning. I pledge to never lose sight of why I chose this profession; to teach, support, advocate, challenge, and love my students.
Change is inevitable, but when your heart is in the right place, nothing can change that. Working with children is not a job for me, it's a lifestyle. Teaching is often at the forefront of my mind; whether I'm bike riding, at the park, or dining with a friend, I am constantly thinking of ways I can incorporate the real world into my classroom lessons. With that said, I look forward to a fulfilling first year at Benhaven.
