     Welcome  to the 2023-2024 School Year!

    My name is Ms. Shanika R. Murphy and I am once again excited to be a part of Rose Hill Magnolia Elementary! I am ready to begin year 16 as an Assistant Principal Intern through East Carolina University's Pirate Leadership Academy. I began teaching at RHM in 2008 and have taught grades first, second, fifth and eighth with the majority of my teaching experience as a fifth grade Language Arts and Science teacher for eleven years.

    I am a native of Duplin County and attended Rose Hill Magnolia Elementary and Charity Middle School.  I graduated from Wallace Rose Hill in 2003 and attended and graduated from East Carolina University in 2008 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education K-6 and a minor in Child Studies.  I obtained a Master of Arts degree in Reading Education with an emphasis in Elementary from Grand Canyon University in 2021. 

    I want to encourage you to be active in your child's education by attending Report Card Pick-ups, PTO meetings, School-wide activities and being a part of the classroom.  In order for your child to be successful, they must know and see you participate.
    I want to wish your child and you a successful upcoming school year.
