Mrs. Paula Murray

I am pleased to serve as a science teacher with The Early/Middle College at GTCC-Greensboro!  I teach Biology and Earth/Environmental Science.  I have several years of teaching experience at the post secondary level in topics of Biology, Marine Biology, Nutrition, Environmental Science and General Science.  I have taught middle school science as well.  I have also worked as an environmental educator for K-12 grade children and was employed as a research associate at the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve for nearly 6 years where I was lead coordinator of a System Wide Monitoring Program. 

My educational background includes a BS in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Virginia Tech and a MS in Biology from East Carolina University. I recently completed requirements for the NC TEACH teacher preparation program at NC State University as a NC Teaching Fellow.  

On a more personal note, I was born in Maryland, grew up in Virginia, but have called North Carolina home since 1998. My father is a veterinarian, so I gained an appreciation and passion for science at a very young age. Other interests include travel, recreation, reading, music, and food.  My husband and I are proud parents of two curious and energetic daughters and a "fur baby" (dog).  

I'm excited to learn with you!
