Brynn Rippy and Cierra Kirby

Mrs. Murguia came to Dewey High School and graduated in 1989. After college, she went to Missouri Southern State College. As a teacher, she teaches computer applications. During her free time, she enjoys watching her son Jay play baseball. She wanted to become a teacher because she wanted to follow in the footsteps of the teachers that had encouraged, pushed, and supported her. When she worked at Avilla Elementary in Missouri, she had a seventh-grader run a 12-minute mile on his first fitness test. He worked hard and ended up with a seven-minute 30-second mile. This has been her favorite teaching moment. She expects her students to gain knowledge and comfort in the classroom or on the field.
