Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Christine Wade
I am a midwesterner who migrated to Texas about 20 years ago. My two adult children attended Plano schools from the 5th and 7th grades on. They were well-prepared for college where they were both Division I athletes. My son played basketball at Sam Houston State and my daughter played volleyball at University of Texas at Arlington. After graduating she went to Texas Women's University to earn her doctorate in psychology. My husband of thirty plus years and I enjoy boating, the great outdoors, and wood working.
I have been teaching special education for about 18 years (five years at Bowman Middle School and the remainder here at Murphy). I am committed to encouraging and developing each student's unique strengths, excitement about learning, and the desire for continued growth.
