Hello! I am Shannon Murphy, teacher of English III and IV at Sugar Creek Charter High School. I am a graduate of East Carolina University with a double Bachelor's Degree in English and Secondary English Education, and a Master's Degree in Multicultural/Transnational Literature. I am certified to teach English as a second language, and three out of my eight years teaching were spent in Busan, South Korea. I am a lover of reading and writing, and I'm excited to share my passion with you all.
