Hello! My name is Kristin Murphy. This is my twenty-fifth year of teaching in Wayland. I have taught grades 3, 4, and 5 in Wayland. I enjoy biking, reading, cooking, traveling, singing, and otherwise enjoying the company of my family. I hold two Bachelor's degrees - one in Sociology and one in Elementary Education from the University of Massachusetts/ Amherst and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Boston College. My professional interests include how to help children become motivated, invested, life-long readers; teaching children about creativity; teaching writing using the SRSD model; and teaching using the Integrated Day model. I love coming to work and spending time with children!
