Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Eric Murphy
My name is Eric Murphy, and I am the CLaSS Teacher (Communication Language and Social Skills) here at Baines Middle School. This is my fifth year here at Baines, and my 10th year teaching overall. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to teach in a variety of Special Education settings, and work with a broad range of students with special needs. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, and also commissioned as an Officer in the United States Army via the ROTC program at TAMUCC. I elected to serve as a member of the Texas National Guard so that I could still pursue my passion of teaching students with special needs while serving on reserve status. I am currently working towards a Masters degree in teaching at Rice University. I live here in Sienna with my wife, Kelly, who is also a teacher in FBISD, and our two children, James (7) and Emma (5).
