Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kay Prom

     My name is Kay Prom and I've been a special education teacher in Saint Paul Public Schools for quite a while. 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 the 80's, and my husband and I have lived on the West Side of Saint Paul since then. 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.

     This is my second year at Murray. I co-teach language arts block at the sixth grade level, and support students through a study skills and reading 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.
