6th Grade CATE Teacher/Department Head/FBLA Advisor/Teacher of the Year 22-23

Vera Murray


My name is Vera A. Murray and I reside in Manning, South Carolina (matchless for beauty and hospitality).  I’ve been blessed with two beautiful children, Tekoa A. McBride and Micah M. McBride and three precious grandchildren.  My education level is Masters + 30 hours. I earned a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) emphasis in Human Resources from Keller Graduate School in June 2008, a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) the emphasis in Non-profit Management from Keller Graduate School in October 2007, and a Bachelor of Arts emphasis in Organizational Management from Morris College in June 2005.  Last school term I completed my 6th year of teaching.

I currently teach 6th graders Digital Literacy, 7th graders Keyboarding and 8th graders Computer Applications.  My teaching philosophy is that every child is a unique individual who has the ability to learn and be successful according to his or her own level of potential.  It is my sincere desire that I mentor each student in reaching their own educational and personal goals in a welcoming, safe, and secure environment conducive to learning.  In order to help catapult themselves in being creative and innovative in the 21st Century classrooms and in their career choice.  In order to compete, successfully both locally and globally.

I look forward to partnering with you and serving your child. Again, I am very enthusiastic about your child learning skills to jump-start their career. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact me at (803) 469-8571 ext. 205 or through email with any questions or concerns.
