Ms. Merissa Murphy

Hello! My name is Merissa Murphy! I'm one of the two American Sign Language (ASL) teacher at McMillen High School! I teach levels 1 & 2. This is my fifth (5th) year teaching and it's indeed a joy! I've learned SO MUCH from my students and I hope they've learned just as much from me!

 

I'm a wife, mother of three small children, Daylin, Li'yah & Sir Charles, and my family is expecting a new addition, Luke Michael, to our family this October! :) 

 

I'm 32 years old and have resided in Texas for 4 years.

 

I love to enlighten anyone willing to learn about the Deaf community and all the opportunities that learning ASL has to offer.
