Email Principal

My name is Danny McMurtry.  I grew up right here in North Platte and graduated from North Platte High School.  In 2000 i received my associates degree from Howard College in Big Spring Texas.  I then moved on and received my bachelors from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.  I entered the education world in 2009 when I took a teaching job in Louisiana.  I taught geometry and physical education for 4 years.  I then became the assistant principal; a position which I held for 2 years.  In 2013, I graduated from Arkansas State University with a masters degree in Educational Leadership.  At that point in time, I took the job as principal of Madison Middle School.  This is my 4th year here at Madison.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Cassie for almost 4 years now.  We are expecting our first child in March of this year.  Cassie works for the school system as well.  She is a para-educator at Washington elementary where she works with kindergarten students.

Our goals here are very simple in definition.  We want to make an impact on the lives of our students.  I feel strongly that in order to teach a student, you have to reach a student.  Building relationships is the only way that we get this done.  I am passionate about this and it drives my actions daily in our building.
