About Mr. Murray

Wayne Murray received his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Utah State University. With more than eight years of teaching experience, Murray has worked with a wide variety of students on various subjects including math, reading, and STEM subjects.

When asked about his best quality as an educator, Murray said “What I enjoy most about teaching is the moment when a student makes the connection and fully understands something they didn’t get before. I believe that my best quality as a teacher is the ability to put my students first and building trust.”

Favorite Performance Character Trait: Initiative

“I want students to take some initiative and responsibility for their own education,” said Murray. “I would like for them to come up with solutions that will enable them to be successful instead of excuses.”
