Mrs. Murphy


Dear Liberty Parents/Guardians! 


Hello! My name is Mrs. Denise Murphy.  I am SO excited to welcome you and your child to THIRD GRADE at Liberty Elementary!  Most importantly, I am THRILLED to be your child’s teacher!  I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us!

Here is a little bit of information about myself that I thought I would share with you.  I was born and raised in Connecticut.  I moved with my family to Lake Havasu City, Arizona in 1980 where I graduated from high school.  Later, I traveled to San Diego where I earned my Associates Degree, then moved up to Las Vegas where I resided for 15 years.  In December of 1994, I graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with my degree in Elementary Education. I taught third, fourth, and fifth grades in Clark County from the spring of 1994 until the end of the 2002 school year.

In June of 2002, I relocated to Phoenix to be closer to my sister.  I worked for the Alhambra School District for 12 years teaching 2nd and 3rd grade.  I have also substituted, mentored new teachers, and spent one year out of the classroom as a school-wide Writing Specialist.  This will be my second year with the Liberty District, and my 20th year teaching!  Wow…the time sure does fly!  

Here's to an another amazing year
