My name is Christy Murphy and I am grateful to serve as the principal of Lee Longino Elementary. I received my Bachelors degree from Southwest Texas in San Marcos. I earned my Master's degree at DBU, Dallas Baptist University. I have spent the previous decade in Dallas ISD and the previous year as assistant principal in Ferris at McDonald Elementary. In the past nineteen years, I have taught various grade levels, been an instructional coach, and an assistant principal for seven years. I believe that by working together, we can foster a supportive environment that empowers our students to reach their full potential. I am here to partner with you to make this a successful year.
I am so excited to be here at Lee Longino Elementary as your assistant principal! I am looking forward to a great year.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education from Arlington Baptist College and a Master of Education from Tennessee Temple University in Educational Leadership. This is beginning my 18th year in education. I have experience teaching reading, math, science and social studies at the middle school level. I have served as a math and science Instructional Coach at both the middle school and high school level and as an elementary Assistant Principal.
I have been married to my wonderful husband, Kevin, for 28 years. We have 2 children and a grandson.
My "why" is to serve the students, families and staff of Longino Elementary to contribute in developing strong relationships and grow our community of learners.
