Miss Kathy Murphy
¡Hola! Bienvenidos a la clase de español. My name is Kathy Murphy, and the 2018-2919 school year will be my 34th year teaching--all at CHS, "our dear old school." I am a 1983 graduate of the University of South Carolina. I am an avid reader, particularly of the spy thriller and mystery genres. I enjoy listening to music, especially the good stuff from the 60's and 70's. I am an enthusiastic movie-goer and an avid fan of James Bond movies. Sean Connery and Daniel Craig are THE James Bonds, by the way, with Mr. Craig being my favorite. I am a faithful attendee of Chapin Eagle football games. It's a great way to spend a Friday night. This year I will be here as a part-time teacher because, according to the state of South Carolina, I am retired. I will be teaching Spanish 1 and Spanish 3 on B days. I look forward to working with the students this year. Your child will be hearing and be speaking a lot of Spanish in class. Parents of Spanish 1 students: Don't be afraid. I repeat a lot and give lots of visual cues and clues. If your child is watching and listening, he will catch on easily.
