Jana Murrey

5th Grade

Hello, my name is Jana Murrey and I am grateful to have the opportunity to teach at Kaufman Christian School. I graduated cum laude from the University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in Elementary Education. I am proud to come from a family of teachers and educators. I have spent the last 10 years educating students in public and private schools. I consider it a privilege to teach both academics and Biblical virtue in the classroom because, as C.S. Lewis says, “Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” 

I have been married to my husband and best friend, Daniel, for over 10 years. We both serve at our church in Dallas. We have a daughter who is a student at KCS.
In my free time, I enjoy swing dancing, listening to old music, watching classic movies, and planning my next adventure with friends and family. I look forward to working with you as we help cultivate wise and virtuous citizens.

Backpacks and lunch boxes must be generic. They may have designs or be multi-colored, but we ask that they not promote any advertisements of any other school, movie, TV, or cartoon character, business, or organization. The backpack’s brand name, such as Jansport, L.L. Bean, Champion, etc. is acceptable as long as it is not a design.
