About Carlene U. Murphy

Carlene U. Murphy is the director of the National Whole-Faculty Study Groups Center in Augusta, Georgia. She began her teaching career as a fourth-grade teacher in 1957 in her hometown of Augusta. She has since held various teaching and administrative positions, developed and administered programs for gifted children in the Richmond County school system, and served as a director of staff development. In 1992, she was the inaugural winner of the National Staff Development Council's Contributions to Staff Development Award, one of the organization's highest honors. Her personal service to the National Staff Development Council included serving as chairperson of the annual national conference in Atlanta in 1986, as president in 1988, and on the board of trustees from 1984 to 1990. After retiring from the Richmond County schools in 1993, she worked through 1997 as a private consultant for the schools and districts that wanted to implement the process that she would name Whole-Faculty Study Groups (WFSGs). She has written extensively about her work in Educational Leadership and the Journal of Staff Development. From the summer of 1997 to December 2002, Murphy worked as a full-time consultant with ATLAS Communities. She worked with all ATLAS schools in the implementation of WFSGs. She also continued to work with schools not associated with the national comprehensive school reform design.show more
