Sally McMurry, BA, B-K, ITFS

A native of eastern North Carolina, Sally attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a major in Child Development and Family Studies and a minor in Social and Economic Justice. In
addition to the Infant Toddler Family Specialist certification, she currently holds three North Carolina teaching licenses: Birth to Kindergarten, Elementary Education (K‐6), and Special Education: General Curriculum.

A teacher at heart, Sally has taught for eight years in Pre‐K and Elementary special education settings both in Chapel Hill‐Carrboro
City Schools and Wake County Public School System. She has significant experience working with a variety of chromosomal abnormalities, developmental delays, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. In 2015, she was named Teacher of the Year at Carpenter Elementary School in Cary.

Shortly after receiving that award, Sally and her husband welcomed their first child at just 29 weeks gestation age.  After spending every
day for almost two months in the NICU at UNC Rex Hospital with her daughter, Sally’s drive to effectively support families of children with
developmental differences strengthened tremendously. She is very passionate about early intervention and strongly believes in a collaborative approach to education.

When she isn’t teaching, Sally is spending time with her husband, chatty toddler, and two ridiculously spoiled dogs.
