My name is Cassandre Murphy! This is my third year teaching, but my first here in North Carolina. I taught 7th and 8th grade Math in Urbana, Maryland for my first two years of teaching. Math has been my passion for as long as I can remember and it is my goal to give some of that to our students here at Hunters Creek Middle.
I was born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in the Palm Springs area and in Joshua Tree. Disneyland and the beach were always my go to places. I attended Copper Mountain College for my Associates degrees. For my Bachelor's I attended the University of California-Riverside where I majored in Mathematics for Teaching Secondary School. I moved to Maryland in 2019 and then to North Carolina in 2021 where my husband is stationed at Camp Lejeune. We have three dogs, two GSD's named Scout and Diesel, and a Golden Retriever named Tucker. We have a 6 year old son who is in first grade and a baby girl due on St. Patrick's day 2022!
I am so excited to get to work with my students this year and love them like my own already! We will do some fun activities and set them up for success in years to come!
