 About Me:

My name is Kim Murphy and this is my 4th year at Spring Forest.  I'm very excited about being here and teaching English Language Arts.  

I have been teaching for 17 years in a variety of roles from Elementary through High School; from private to public; and from General Education to Special Education. 

 I love Spring Branch and I especially love Spring Forest.  We have a great administration and staff and awesome students! 

I'm looking forward to working with your child and having a great year!!

Please feel free to contact me anytime.

      Language Arts is crucial to success in all areas of school and life.  It is one place where a student is challenged to learn skills that they will use in all areas of life.  Being able to read and write is a critical life skill, but it is also important to take that and synthesize with the world around him/her.  Through great literature, your student will learn to look at the world and people around them in a new way.  Through writing, your student will learn to express themselves and communicate with a wide variety of individuals.  It is my personal goal to encourage every student to develop a love for independent lifelong learning.  

Homework

 Every student will be required to complete homework throughout the year following school guidelines and grading policy.  The homework given is to reinforce learning in the classroom.  It is my goal to use this as a means to build responsbility for their own learning and to meet deadlines.  Each student will have some choice in the order he/she will complete their homework every 3 week grading period through the use of a homework choice chart in which the homework assignments will be written down and they may decide in what order to complete them.
