For eight years, he was the PE teacher at Nauset Middle School. Mr. Murphy graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Sport and Leisure Studies.
Many families in Sandwich know Mr. Murphy as the proud dad of Caroline Murphy, SHS Senior and Class President and Patrick, an 8th grader at the STEM Academy. His wife Gina has been a volunteer in our schools and is the VP of Sales for Beauty Counter.
Mr. Murphy answered some questions to help everyone in the SPS Community get to know him.

My favorite teaching moment of any year is introducing something new to a student and seeing them master the activity after putting days and days of effort into it. It is pure joy
