Kate Murray

Principal

I have been a proud Norsewoman since 1995. I taught French and English here for 15 years. I have been part of the administrative team since 2011 and was named principal in 2013.

I grew up in Chicago and attended the University of Michigan where I majored in French and English. I was lucky enough to be placed at North for my student teaching, and I’ve never left. Like everyone who has the opportunity to walk through our doors, I was immediately drawn into the family-like atmosphere and the commitment to all students.

I am passionate about teaching and learning and am currently pursuing my doctorate in educational leadership at Oakland University. Go North!

Assistant Principal & Athletic Director

I have been a member of the North family since 1998. I taught Business Education classes here for 18 years; as well as a few Television Production classes when I first joined the North staff.

I attended Central Michigan University majoring in Television Production, Speech, Debate, and Communications with a minor in Marketing and Business Education. I have also received a Masters Degree from Eastern Michigan University in Educational Leadership/Secondary Administration.

My coaching and athletic experiences date back 30 years. I have enjoyed coaching girls basketball at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, as well as in Michigan’s AAU program. I have coached softball at the middle school and high school level as well as boys Little League baseball.

I am passionate about education at all levels. I believe as educators it is our responsibility not only to educate our students, but to also embrace and continually grow in our own professional development as well.

I am the proud mom of two Norsemen; Nathan, Class of 2018 and Hannah, Class of 2020. My husband Eric is an AP Economics high school teacher in the South Lyon School District. I am also the vice president of a non-profit organization called the Jacob Michael Davis Foundation. The foundation is named after my oldest son Jacob who battled leukemia for 5 ½ years finally succumbing to the disease in May of 2005. The foundation is dedicated to helping families touched by childhood cancer. jacobmichaeldavis.org

Assistant Principal
 
I have been a member of the North community since 2001 and have been teaching and learning in the math department ever since. I have had the opportunity to teach a diverse group of math classes here, but Geometry has always been my favorite. I have enjoyed coaching multiple sports at North, advising the Class of 2008 and chairing the math department.
 
I grew up on the West side of the state, attending East Grand Rapids High School. I went to Albion College where I majored in Math with a minor in English. After graduating from Albion, I was lucky to become a member of the North family and have been working here ever since.
 
I am passionate about growing ALL learners here at North and am looking forward to continuing that work as an assistant principal.
