Hello, my name is Jana Murrey and I am thrilled to teach 2nd grade at Kaufman Christian School. My husband, Daniel, and I have been married for 7 years and we have a very sweet and smiley toddler, Lucy. We actively serve at our church, Ridge Pointe Fellowship in Dallas, where I sing with the praise team.
My bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate are from the University of Texas at Dallas and this will be my ninth year educating students. As a teacher, I believe I am called not only to educate students in their academic pursuits but to model and directly teach Christian morals and values. I think C.S. Lewis put it perfectly when he said, “Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make a more clever devil.” I do not take this responsibility lightly and look forward to working alongside parents to help develop their child’s unique God-given talents and skills.
In my spare time, I love hanging out with my close friends, reading, sipping coffee, watching movies, and planning my next vacation.
