Ms. Gillian Murphy - 6th Grade World Cultures

Welcome to 6th grade World Cultures!

I am so excited to play a role in your student's educational journey! I joined Little Elm ISD in 2018 and I am so glad to be part of the famiLE. This will be my second year at Lakeside Middle School. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a volunteer coach for the GOAL soccer club at LMS. Check out our club page here for more information!

I have lived in Denton, TX since 2001. When I was in school, I was very involved in sports, band, choir, and other extracurricular activities. I have always had a passion for learning. I attended the University of North Texas and graduated with a B.A. in Geography in 2015. I went back to school soon after that, and in May of 2018 I graduated from UNT with an M.Ed. in Teaching. Many members of my family work in education and I am proud to be a teacher! 

I have been married to my husband Fábio since June 2018. We don't have any pets or children, but we do have a lot of plants. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, gardening, swimming, playing sports, learning languages (Portuguese and Spanish), and spending time with family and friends. We also host a weekly radio show on KUZU 92.9, a community radio station in Denton.

Please feel free to contact me for any reason and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Your student's learning is my highest priority. Let's make this a great year!

"Courage and humility in the face of adversity ultimately yields personal growth." - Capt. Stephen F. Murphy, USN (AKA Uncle Steve)
