Fourth & Fifth Grade Teacher


“Trust in the Lord instead. Be kind and good to others; then you will live safely here in the land and prosper, feeding in safety.”
Psalms 37:3


Hi, I am Dawn Murray and I will be teaching fourth grade English Language Arts.  It is a true blessing to have the opportunity to impact each student’s life. My goal is to provide and instill a true love of learning in academics and to help each student experience God’s infallible love. While in the process of each of these two things, my goal is also to further mold each student’s respect for others.

My educational background began with a Bachelor of Science from Baylor University. I attended Tarleton State and became a certified Reading Recovery teacher twenty years ago. Most of my 33 years in education has been focused on reading. I am also a certified Master Reading teacher.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy time with my family. My husband, Steve, is a magnificent chef. He has his own lighting company. Carrie is our oldest daughter. She is an A&M graduate with a degree in Poultry Science. She works for Pilgrims and travels to many places. Cameron is our middle child. He lives in Wichita Falls area.  Chloe is our youngest and will be a sophomore  at Midway High School.  We also have two grandsons; Grayson, who will be a Kindergartener at WCS and CJ, who is only six weeks old! Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy time at the beach, traveling, movies, going out to eat and shopping.
