Hello Everyone,

I am very excited to be Murphy's 9th  grade School Counselor.  I have been working in the school system for numerous years and they have all been fun filled and rewarding.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I am a native of Mobile, Alabama.  I have been married for over 32 years to my wonderful best friend, William, and we have two beautiful children.  I love spending time with my family and Disney World is my favorite place to visit.  A fun fact about me is I was born on September 9th, I got married on September 9th, I weighed 9 pounds and 9 ounces and my favorite number is 9.  

I pursued a degree in education because of my mother's love for reading and I honestly have to say this was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I love working with teen-age students.  They fill my heart with joy and I am just as excited as they are when they make accomplishments in their life.  It is my goal to be a positive lasting impression in their lives and always be someone that has planted a growing seed in them.


My Philosophy is, "Education Offers a Great Return; Invest in the Stock!"  I look forward to working with each and everyone of you and I know we will yield a great return.


Murphy Panthers Rock,

Mrs. Kimberley James
