Kendra Murphy was nominated by an anonymous student.

Mrs. Murphy is a caring and loving teacher. Some kids don't enjoy going to school, but when they walk into Mrs. Murphy's classroom, they light up with joy. She encourages her students to be adventurous, but they still learn something new every day they're with her. Mrs. Murphy helps children in the community to be better citizens. Some kids in other grades look forward to fourth grade, simply to find out if they are going to be in Mrs. Murphy’s class. She always has time to help a child in need, even if they aren't a student in her class.

Mrs. Murphy is one in a million!!! My son Daniel was thrilled to be a student in Mrs. Murphy's class. Mrs. Murphy's enthusiasm as a teacher transcends to her students. Daniel looked forward to every day in her class. He often said how much fun she made each day of school. He was curious to learn about gemstones, the state capitals- as the class could be heard singing "the capitals song" in the halls on the way to lunch, and how Mrs. Murphy kept the class engaged in every lesson. She is always positive, she goes above and beyond for each and every student. Mrs. Murphy calls her class SUPERSTARS and Mrs. Murphy is a superstar educator. Mrs. Murphy gave my son the foundation to being organized and these lessons were so instrumental that even today, 4 years later in 8th grade, he is very organized when completing his homework and studying for exams. My son knows the importance of hard work and is eager to learn, he never forgot her lessons. Daniel enjoys reading and Mrs. Murphy often read to the class to share the wonder of a story. Mrs. Murphy is a Life Changer each and every day. Her energy is contagious and her sense of humor brings a smile and laughter to her students. She makes the Dawe Elementary School a brighter, more wonderful place because of her spirit, heart, and love of teaching. I vote for Mrs. Murphy for The Life Changer of the Year Award!!

I vote for Mrs. Murphy. She is the best teacher I could ever have. When I'm she tells me it"s going to be alright. You should give Mrs. Murphy this award because she is a loving teacher. She's not one of those teachers who has a favorite. She loves all of her children equally. Also she disaplens her children really good. I am so thankful to have Mrs.Murphy as my teacher.
