Professional Profile

Faith Murrell

I am a lifelong learner. I constantly seek to develop my skills, acquire new ones, and widen my knowledge. I enjoy sharing my love of learning with others, cultivating a spirit of curiosity and wonder in the young students I have the privilege of teaching; engaging in Socratic discussions with peers and mentors; and sharing the knowledge and ideas on the human experience through writing.

I am an imaginative visionary. With effort, intelligence, collaboration, and trial and error, almost anything is possible. I am constantly asking the question, “What if?” At the same time, though, I am a practical realist. The most brilliant, well thought-out plans go wrong. Hence, the “what if” is quickly followed by, “Is this going to work?” I believe the people who accomplish the most with their lives are those who dream big, work hard, and try, try again.
