Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are very pleased to learn that Jennifer "Buffy" Murphy was named South Carolina Teacher of the Year for 2006-2007 by the South Carolina Department of Education; and

Whereas, after earning her bachelor's degree from Clemson University, Murphy was called to teaching and obtained a master's degree in education from the University of South Carolina and additional graduate-level credit from the College of Charleston; she has made presentations at the state and national level on subjects ranging from literacy to technology; and
Whereas, Mrs. Murphy has not only further honed her skills becoming a National Board Certified teacher, but she has also shared her extraordinary talent and imparted her passion for teaching by serving as a mentor and adjunct professor at the University of South Carolina's Professional Development School Network - a partnership between the university and local school districts working to enhance the knowledge and skills of educators; and
Whereas, an exemplary teacher and leader in education, Mrs. Murphy approaches her career with unparalleled commitment and infectious enthusiasm; she is selfless in her devotion to her students and finds great satisfaction and value in building relationships with her students and their families; and

Through her innovative techniques and teaching philosophies, she not only motivates her students to become lifelong learners, but she also inspires her fellow educators to further their own professional growth and development; and
Whereas, Mrs. Murphy's classroom provides an environment ripe for learning and a community ideal for individual growth. Mrs. Murphy is committed to helping every student succeed, and she validates each child from the moment he or she enters her classroom. Students not only get a firm educational foundation, they also grow in self-confidence and self-worth and they learn by example how to value and respect each other; and
