Mrs. Jeanette Murray

I was born and raised in the Dallas area. I graduated from The Colony High School in 1997, and then graduated magna cum laude from Texas Woman's University with a B.A. in Art History and Art Education. I hold teaching certificates for All-Level Art and Technology Applications for grades 8-12; and have been at Lake Dallas High School since 2001.
I'm an artist. I enjoy drawing, painting, and photography; and in my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, work out and stay active. One of my goals in life is to travel as much as possible. In the last several years I have visited Italy, England, Scotland, Wales, Greece, and Jamaica.
