My name is Ms. Cheryl Murchie, but everybody calls me Murchie. I have been teaching since I graduated from Hannibal LaGrange College with my degree in Secondary Business/Technology in2000. I was a late bloomer, so it is important for me to tell my students that it is never too late to learn something new and to not be afraid to rearrange your goals to achieve what you want in your life. I am the mom of two awesome kids and the grandmother of two spectacular granddaughters. My Family is very important to me, and they are my greatest achievement! I have been the Business/Technology teacher for the past 19 years at Ballard. I have also been the Technology Coordinator, High School and Junior High Scholar Bowl Sponsor, and have had the pleasure of sponsoring several awesome classes through-out the years. I believe we never stop learning and there are times when I can learn from my students as much as they can learn from me. I am not afraid to say; “I don’t know the answer, let’s look it up!” I enjoy watching the student’s faces when they realize they have learned something. I have tried, through-out the years, to make sure that each of my students knows they are special to me. I have enjoyed being a part of this community all these years. The one thing I noticed when I came to be a teacher here in 2002, was the total support of the community for their students. Here the older generations support the students and their activities as much as the families do. But, now it is time for me to move on. This is my final year at Ballard. I have enjoyed my many years here. I tell my students that life can be a series of books, with many chapters. Well, it is time to close the “Teaching” books and get ready for the “Retirement” books in my series. The people of this community, especially the students, which have touched my life will not be forgotten.
