I started my career in GCPS education in 2013.  I also taught classes in children’s literature, writing, and reading at the University of Georgia.  I earned my master’s degree in Instructional Technology and my Ph.D. in Language and Literacy Education from the University of Georgia.  As a National Writing Project Teacher Consultant, I have a passion for writing and creative, critical thinking. I have authored three children’s books as well as many articles for teachers and researchers.  I love picture books and poetry.  My favorite author is Jacqueline Woodson.

My name is Keri Murphy; I am the Media Clerk at Harmony Elementary.  I received my bachelor degree in early childhood education from Kennesaw State University.  I started my career in education in 1995, and I have also worked in business administration. I love spending time with my family- playing board games, having family movie nights, and going to Italy’s Pizza or El Centinela for dinner.  I also really enjoy reading! I feel truly blessed to be part of the Harmony Family, and to be able to work in the Media Center.  I love helping students find books they can’t wait to read!
