Hello and Welcome!


Thank you for visiting the Jones Valley Middle School’s website. I am Ms. Murphy, an Assistant Principal. Prior to my current position, I served as Curriculum Coach and as an English teacher. As a longtime resident of Birmingham, Alabama, I have loved learning since childhood and enjoy supporting the interactions of facilitating academic achievement for our student population. This year, we are focused on increasing Reading and Mathematical outcomes by providing standards-based instruction and Social Emotional Learning. I am excited for the future of Jones Valley Middle School. As we strive to build leaders and impact the world, we are sure to face challenges. We do this with an eagerness to accept positive changes, constantly learning to ensure a brighter tomorrow. I look forward to working with you and your family this year. There is no better time to be a Dragon! Ms. Murphy Assistant Principal Jones Valley Middle School!
