Principal Jennifer Murray
I am the proud principal of Baldwin Elementary School! I am so excited to lead such an amazing school into the 21st century as we explore, imagine, and create each and every day!
I have been in education for about 22 years. I have had the opportunity to teach 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade over 15 years, instructional facilitator for 3 years, and an administrator for 4 years. It is the most rewarding job ever and I love coming to work each and every day. My family has lived in Austin, Chicago, Plano, and then back to Austin. We currently live in Dripping Springs, Texas where I have spent the last 10 years working.
My family consists of my husband, James who I have had the absolute pleasure of being married to for the last 23 years! Together we have 3 children. My oldest son, Garrett is a junior at Texas Tech studying business. He absolutely loves it up there and has embraced the history and traditions of the school. My middle child, Zachary is 16 and a junior at Dripping Springs High School. He plays football and baseball and loves every minute of it. In addition, he is taking dual credit classes and remains very busy! My daughter, Mackenzie is 14 and a freshmen at Dripping Springs High. She plays both school volleyball and golf as well as select volleyball. I guess you know what I do in my free time. I am their biggest fan and love watching them play every chance I get!
I hope to have created an environment where all children feel safe, both physically and academically. I want children to embrace learning and take risks everyday as we prepare them for the future. At the same time I want children to be children - allowing them to explore and play is an important part of who they are now and in the future.
I am proud of our school and I invite each of you to come visit Baldwin - you will be amazed at what you see!
