Mrs. Kelly Murphy

Hello! My name is Kelly Murphy. I grew up in Smithfield, NC and am a 1996 graduate of Smithfield-Selma High School. I went on to receive both of my degrees in Elementary Education from East Carolina University. My husband and I have been married for 17 years and have 2 sons, Landon (15) and Parker (12). We enjoy traveling to new places, going to baseball and basketball games, and we LOVE water parks! This is my 21st year as a teacher. I taught Kindergarten for 16 years and am currently beginning my 5th year of teaching first grade! I am very excited about this school year and working with my students and their families!
