Welcome to Fifth Grade!
Teaching is my passion and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher. I am excited for a fun and adventurous year in fifth grade!
Welcome to fifth grade! I am so excited to be at Two Bunch Palms Elementary School In Desert Hot Springs. I am so excited to teach in the classroom, meet your child, and begin getting to know each of their personalities. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, whether it is in the classroom or on the soccer field. I am thrilled to be working with you and your child this year! We have a fun year planned and with lots of learning to prepare your child for middle school.
This year we will incorporate lots of technology into the classroom in order to prepare your child for the future. Feel free to check out our class website at amurph.weebly.com. In order to monitor your child’s behavior in the classroom we will be using class dojo, you can download the app or login through classdojo.com.
Want to know a little about me? I grew up in San Diego and graduated from California State University Long Beach. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, I love traveling, snowboarding, camping and hiking. I have volunteered as a soccer coach and enjoyed teaching the fundamentals of the sport to eager athletes. I hope to instill a love for learning in your child and encourage them to reach for their dreams.
Open communication is important to our fifth grade community. If you have any comments, questions or concerns please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call through the school at (760) 251-7220. I look forward to a great year together!
