Meet Ms. Andrena Murphy, 1st Grade Teacher

Hello! My name is Andrena Murphy. The students call me, “Ms. Murphy.” I’m the first grade teacher at Friendship Academy. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in the Twin Cities. I recently graduated from Augsburg College, in Minneapolis, with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I love teaching young minds! Working with school-age children has been both a dream and passion of mine since childhood. I believe that every child, with the proper support, mindset, and opportunities, can learn. I’m looking forward to a school year full of growth, successes, and enjoyable experiences.
