Ms. Tracy Murray

My name is Tracy Murray and I have been a member of the LHS faculty since 2000.  I started my teaching career at LHS, and have never wanted to teach anywhere else. In my years at LHS I have taught Survey US History, AP US History, Modern World History, and various directed studies courses.  I currently teach Ancient World History and AP European History.  I am also the current Social Studies Department Chair.   I hold a B.S. in secondary education and a M.S.E in Curriculum and Instruction. Both of my degrees were earned at The University of Kansas.  I love what I do because daily I am given a chance to learn from my students.  Daily they challenge me to think about the world in new ways and I hope I do the same for them.  My appreciation and love of history constantly exposes me to new ideas and information, and I deeply appreciate that opportunity. Hermann Hesse once said, “To study history means submitting to chaos and nevertheless retaining faith in order and meaning.”
