Hello! My name is Meghan McMurray and I will be your child's Social Studies teacher for this school year. This will be my 10th year teaching, and I am really excited! Prior to working at Gurrie I taught 7th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies in Chicago's Northwest Side. This is my second year at Gurrie and I am ready to make it the best year it can be.
I earned my bachelor's degree from Saint Xavier University majoring in Secondary Education Social Science with an endorsement in Middle School. I completed my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and English as a Second Language. Social Studies is my favorite subject, especially United States history, and I thoroughly enjoy working with middle school students. The best way to reach me is through email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am excited and enthusiastic about the upcoming year and look forward to working with you and your child as we explore history!
