Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kay Prom

     My name is Kay Prom and I've been a special education teacher in Saint Paul Public Schools since 1988. I attended Illinois State University, and completed graduate studies at the University of Illinois and University of Wisconsin- River Falls. Originally from the Chicago area, I moved to Minnesota in 1987, and my husband Ken and I have lived on the West Side of Saint Paul for 25 years. We have two sons attending college. When not walking our dog, Sophia, we enjoy creating healthy dishes with the vegetables we grow in our large gardens.

     After fifteen years at an alternative high school, it was time for a change, and this is my first year at Murray. I co-teach language arts at the sixth and seventh grade levels, and have a study skills class. I'm enjoying the energy level of middle schoolers, and the dedication and professionalism of the staff. When I was in middle school, my language arts teacher impacted my life greatly by telling me I had potential and strengths as a writer. Her words still influence me today. My hope is to pass on some of that encouragement to the scholars at Murray.
