Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Murphy


I am your 7th Grade Science Teahcer at Wills Point Junior High School. I am an Army veteran and former paraprofessional assistant from the 2020-2021 school year. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family, working out and learning about new things, as I am a lifelong learner. 

My Educational and Professional Background

I graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology in 2007 and a Master of Science in Business Management in 2016. After graduation, I worked as a caseworker for Family and Protective Services and Mental health from 2008-2012. I left the caseworker field for a career in the IT field. I worked in this field from 2016 to 2019. I then moved into the teaching field to be closer to my family and the amazing people of Wills Point where I started working on my certification in teaching. 

My Educational Philosphy

I believe every child is special and deserves a caring, inspiring, and a true leader. I want to create an atmosphere in which they can grow emotionally, intellectually, and socially. As an educator, I want to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing a safe, risk-taking, and collaborative environment. I want our students to develop positive character and leadership traits which are essential in becoming an amazing citizen. I believe a positive education is an essential part of lifelong success.
