My name is Christopher Murphy and I LOVE calling Leonetti Elementary my home!
Working in education is both a passion and a privilege. I strive to create a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment, in which students are encouraged to believe in themselves and to do their personal best. I’m very passionate about finding new, dynamic ways to impact young minds. This journey we are on together will prove to be fulfilling and fun and I’m ready to share this with you and your child.
When I am not teaching or planning fun lessons for our class, I love to spend time with my family! I am thrilled to be a part of an amazing community doing a job I love. My wife and I have been married and living in Sienna for 17 years and are proud to raise our 3 children, Eleanor, McLean and Lizzy as Leonetti Lions. We are a family of animal lovers and outdoor enthusiasts that love camping, fishing, biking, skating and even beekeeping together.
I graduated from the University of Houston in August, 2001 with a bachelors in communications. Seeking career fulfillment and my true passion, I obtained my teaching certification from Region IV in August 2017.
