Mr. Phil Murray

Principal

I am proud to serve you as the principal of Long Beach Elementary School. I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Elmhurst College, in Elmhurst, Ill., in 1995. I began my teaching career as a seventh grade math teacher at West Chicago Middle School. After two years, I transitioned to Winfield Middle School as a sixth, seventh, and eighth grade math teacher, where I remained for seven years. My last two years in Winfield, I served a dual role as a math teacher and assistant principal. I received my master’s degree in educational administration from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, in 2002.

I have been in School District 308 for the past 10 years, serving as assistant principal at Traughber Junior High School for five years and at Bednarcik Junior High for one year. In 2010, I was hired as the principal of Hunt Club Elementary School, where I served for three years before moving to Long Beach Elementary School to start the 2013-14 school year. As I start my 11th year with the district and 20th year in education, I believe that doing everything we can to provide all students the best opportunity to learn and excel is at the forefront of my passion. I look forward to serving the staff, students and families of Long Beach
