Mrs. Caryn Rooke

I am so excited to be sharing my love for knowledge and learning in Science here at Murphy Middle. I have several years of educational experience under my belt from ages 2 to 18 in many different capacities, both as an educator and a volunteer. I began my career in preschool as I was attending college to earn my degree in Nursing. During my time in nursing school, I realized that I was meant to be a teacher. 

I continued attending college part time and worked at Wilson Middle School as a Teacher's Assistant in the Active Learning Classroom. Once the school year finished, I devoted my time to my education on a full time basis. While I was at the University of Texas at Dallas, I became an AVID tutor and worked at Murphy Middle and Plano East. I was here at Murphy Middle for three years. It was such a wonderful experience and cemented my aspirations of becoming a middle school teacher.  I graduated cum laude from UTD and became certified to teach 4th - 8th grade. My first year as a teacher was at Boggess Elementary teaching 5th grade, which has led me here to my dream job of teaching middle school science!

When I am not in the classroom, I spend my time with my husband and two teenage boys. My oldest is a junior at Plano East and my youngest is a freshman at McMillen. They both play soccer competitively year round. My oldest also plays soccer for Plano East. We are avid soccer fans! So, if we are not on a field, we are watching soccer on television, going to professional games, reading about it or playing in our spare time.
