Welcome to Murphy!
 
I started at Murphy seven years ago and can’t believe where the time has gone! Back then, I was just happy to get my first principalship, but now, I’m proud to be the leader of such amazing students, staff, parents, and community members. I’m especially excited about the new programs the district is continuing as we are seeing students excited about coming to school and seeing a huge improvement in learning. There’s never been a better time to be part of D116!

Hello!  My name is Amanda Johns and I am excited to join Murphy Elementary this year as Assistant Principal.  

I come to you from Texas where I just completed my twenty-first year in education.  I have experience teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade, as well as working with students who are new to the english language.  I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Reading, as well as a double Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Administration from Texas A&M-Commerce.  

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my children, traveling, reading, and supporting the Dallas Cowboys!  

I’m excited to work with the students, staff, and families at Murphy Elementary!

Sincerely,

Amanda Johns, Assistant Principal
