Title(s): Physical Education Teacher (G4-G8); Coach

Casey Murray joined the teaching staff of the French International School of Philadelphia in 2007. He teaches physical education and is the sports coach for the Upper School. Previously, he taught prekindergarten through eighth grade physical education and health at Our Lady of Victory.

Born in Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, he received a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Penn State University and a physical education and health for K-12 teacher certification from Eastern University.

When asked how his life experiences have influenced him as it relates to working at the French International School, Mr. Murray said, “What really got me into teaching PE was my enjoyment of playing sports throughout school and my passion and realizing the importance of being active. I see how beneficial it was and still is to me and I enjoy sharing that with the students.”

He also finds the diversity of the student body and their ability to become fluent in both French and English a distinctive trait not found in other schools in the Philadelphia area.

When not teaching or coaching, Mr. Murray can be found spending quality time with his family and friends, at the beach or in the mountains snowboarding.
