About me

Hello and welcome to second grade!!
My name is Kennisha Murray and I am super excited to be your child's teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. I am in my fourth year of teaching and I'm excited to see what this year has in store! I'm a native of Huntsville, TX and received my Bachelor of Arts degree at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, Go Runners!) in Interdisciplinary Studies, with a primary focus in Early Childhood through 6th grade. I'm currently in school pursing a degree in School Counseling looking to graduate in the Fall of 2017! During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and dog Bruno! My goal for this year is to educate your child through fun and engaging learning. If you have any questions or concerns my conference days are Monday and Friday from 7:35-8:00 or after school from 3:40-4:05. Feel free to call me at the school (936) 856-1241 or email me at kmurray@willisisd.org. With your help and support let's work together to make this a successful year!
