Hello, I am Megan Murphy, a student and GVSU. I am pursuing a degree in special education with a concentration in the emotionally impaired and learning disabled area.
I was born on the south side of Chicago and moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan when I was a few years old. I lived there up until December 2007 when I decided to move to Grand Rapids to attend Grand Valley State University.
I have 6 people in my family: My mom, dad, sister, brother, grandma, and me. My sister is the oldest, my brother is the youngest, leaving me to be the middle child.
It was my grandma who encouraged me to pursue a degree in education. She is 86 years old and a retired English/Philosophy teacher. She knew I wasn’t into my first major, which was nursing like my mom and my sister. She helped me put into perspective how much I love helping children and always had a way with them.
I am looking forward to starting the College of Education at GVSU in the fall of 2008.
