Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Leah Pugh

I have been a part of Murphy Junior High School since it opened in 2012. I attended the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where I earned a degree in elementary education. Through additional coursework and tests, I received junior high endorsements in math, science, language arts, and social studies. I completed my master’s degree through Concordia University, Chicago, in curriculum and instruction in the winter of 2015.

My classroom experience has taken me from kindergarten to eighth grade. Prior to joining the District 308 family, I worked in the Naperville school district as a substitute teacher and a classroom assistant in a fifth grade classroom. I began my time at Murphy teaching sixth grade math, sixth grade science and eighth grade science—I was busy. This year marks my ninth as a full-time math teacher, and I am very excited about this challenge. This year, I am teaching all seventh grade math!
