Cole Murphy

I am incredibly honored to call myself a member of the Sartartia Middle School community.  I currently hold a Bachelor’s degree in English/Creative Writing from the University of Houston and a Master’s degree in English Literature from the University of Texas at Tyler. I have had the opportunity to teach Composition at the collegiate level and have experience working with students as a university writing center employee and an English tutor.

I currently teach 8th grade Academic and AAC English, co-sponsor the SMS chapter of the National Junior Honor Society, and serve as department head for ELA. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, trying new restaurants in the Houston area, and going to see live music as much as possible.

My goal for student success is to prepare them for high school and college while helping them find something that they truly love about English. I am passionate about English studies and I hope that my students feel inspired by the example I set in the classroom each day.
