Mrs. Keri Murphy

Welcome to Mrs. Murphy's 2nd Grade Website!

This is my seventh year teaching 2nd grade at Granada-Huntley-East Chain Elementary School; however, this is my 17th year of teaching.  I am so fortunate to teach in a such a great school district and community!  I am eager and excited to get to know the students, parents, and community! 
I actually started off my education career at Granada-Huntley-East Chain!  I attend Kindergarten - 3rd grade at GHEC!  I then attended and graduated from Blue Earth Area High School.  After graduation, I attended Winona State University where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree and Minnesota Teaching License in Elementary Education with Pre-primary Emphasis.  I also, have taken graduate classes and received my Early Childhood Special Education Degree and Minnesota ECSE License from Southwest State University in Marshall.  I finished my Educational Leadership Master's Program through the University of Minnesota Saint Mary's June of 2019!  I have been accepted and will be starting my Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership at the University of Minnesota Saint Mary's in May of 2021!

Teaching Experiences: 
Prior to this wonderful experience, I have taught for 10 years at Southwest Star Concept (Heron Lake-Okabena) Elementary.  I taught 6 years in the Preschool & ECSE Program along with the Title One Coordinator.  My last 4 years I taught 3rd grade!
Third years ago, I had a great experience teaching Kindergarten Special Education at Fairmont Elementary School!  However, I am so excited to be back into the classroom!  I absolutely loved teaching 2nd grade here last six years and can't wait for the upcoming school year!

All About Me: 
My husband, Markus, and I are so excited to be back living and raising our family in the communities and area that we grew up in!  I enjoy spending time with my family which includes my husband, Markus, and our two daughters, Brooklyn (13) and Kennedy (11).  Our family enjoys working, growing, and managing our vineyard called "Gravel Ridge Vineyards".  I also enjoy reading, swimming, shopping, and traveling!

I hope this website becomes a useful tool for you!  My intention is to upload my weekly newsletter, and include other important information such as photos, links, etc.!
 Please feel free to contact me at any time!
