Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings Murray Community!
My name is Linda Morrison and I teach sixth-grade Readers’ and Writers’ Workshop. This is my third year teaching at Murray and my twenty-seventh teaching in St. Paul. I received my undergraduate degree from The College of St. Catherine and my Masters in Education from Hamline University. Most of my tenure in St. Paul was teaching English at Hazel Park Middle School, and in 2010, I followed my Hazel Park seventh-graders to Battle Creek Middle School where I taught eighth-grade English for 3 years. I’m happy to be here at Murray with these amazing sixth-graders and staff. Outside of school I spend a lot of time with my daughter, Mia, who is also new to middle school this year but as a fifth-grader. In my spare time I enjoy biking long distances, running, weight training, reading, music, travel, gardening and cooking. In addition to teaching at Murray, I am a group fitness instructor at the YMCA teaching BodyFlow, which incorporates Yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi. I love to socialize, eat different foods (even junk food), and relax with friends and family!
