Ms. Murphy was recently awarded the 2020 NC Sanford Teacher Award for demonstrating high levels of inspirational teaching practices by engaging students, building student confidence, giving students a voice, motivating students to succeed, and creating an inclusive environment. Each state winner has a chance to win the National Sanford Teacher Award which will be announced later this year.
At Piney Creek School, we believe that all students should be provided a rigorous and engaging curriculum where they will cultivate a passion for continued learning. Our culture of high expectations will provide the opportunity for students to be empowered, successful, self-directed learners. As a learning community, we will develop, nurture, and challenge students to their fullest potential in order for them to become college and career ready.
Through a collaborative partnership between staff, students, parents, and community, Piney Creek School will promote a safe, productive environment where teaching and learning is the avenue for students to succeed in order to become responsible members of our global society.
