BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Catherine Murphy plans to foster student- and staff-achievement in her new role as principal of Fairglen Elementary in Cocoa.
“My greatest career accomplishments are the individual success stories of students and teachers I have worked with over the years,” Murphy said.
“That’s the goal in education: success for all. I look forward to working with the amazing staff at Fairglen to continue to support our students and families, and learning about our community and showcasing the great things happening at Fairglen.”
During her 13-year educational career, Murphy has served at Melbourne schools as a teacher at Croton Elementary, the Title 1 coordinator at Sabal Elementary and, most recently, the assistant principal of Longleaf Elementary.
“Being a part of team, problem-solving to meet the needs of students and getting to experience their success is what drives my work,” she said.
“The professional experiences I enjoy most are those that bring varying ideas to the table so that we can share and learn from each other. I truly enjoy working in professional learning communities with my colleagues.”
Murphy earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida and a master’s degree from NOVA Southeastern University.
She is a Brevard County native and attended Andersen Elementary and Kennedy Middle in Rockledge and graduated from Rockledge High. Murphy is a Rockledge resident and her two daughters are currently Brevard Public Schools students.
