In this issue we welcome Miss Murray and Mr. Evans, our two new Physical Education teachers who help keep our students on the move.
Miss Murray serves as a Physical Education teacher and Athletics Assistant for Atlanta Classical. Miss Murray moved with her family from New York City to Fayetteville, Georgia in 2005 where she attended middle and high school. A graduate of Howard University, she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Health Science in 2016. Before joining Atlanta Classical Academy, Miss Murray served as a Youth Fit for Life Instructor for the YMCA in partnership with Drew Charter School. There she provided physical education instruction to elementary age students.
Miss Murray is currently pursuing her Master’s in Education at Georgia State University and is a candidate for completion in 2019. Miss Murray played competitive tennis during middle and high school and continues to be a fan of the sport. She loves to travel, especially to her family’s home country of Trinidad & Tobago and the island of Barbados.
Originally from Jackson, Tennessee, Mr. Evans came to Atlanta in 2011 after living in several cities due to his father’s military service. At Atlanta Classical, he serves as a Physical Education/Health teacher and Athletic Assistant.
