Mrs. Z's Kindergarten Room 142

Welcome to Burroughs Room 142!

I am so excited to be back at Burroughs for my fourth year!  I made the big move from the second grade team to my favorite grade-- kindergarten!

A little bit of information about me......

I have taught for Minneapolis Public Schools since 1993.  I am a graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead with a degree in psychology and I earned my elementary teaching credentials at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. I completed the K-12 Reading Specialist License at the University of Minnesota.  I live in Saint Paul with my husband Eric, who is a school social worker at Pratt School in Minneapolis.  Our daughter, Kiera, is a sophmore at the University of Minnesota and like her mom is studying psychology.  Like her dad, she wants to be a social worker! Our son Calvin, lives and works in Portland, OR with his significant other, Sam, while she is working on becoming an optometrist.  I love spending time with my family, being in nature (especially on a lake), reading and knitting.  

I consider it a privilege to teach your child and to work with your family.  I am definitely one of those folks who feel like teaching children is one of the joys of my life.  Early childhood is an amazing time in life and I want to make your child's kindergarten experience a wonderful one! 


The very best way to get in touch with me is by email.  My email address is Julie.Murray@mpls.k12.mn.us.
