Mr. Anthony Kappen

Hello, my name is Anthony Kappen and I am very excited to be the new fifth grade teacher here at Murphy.

I graduated from Oakland University in 2019 with a degree in elementary education with a concentration in mathematics. Upon graduation, I accepted a job at Battle Creek Public Schools and was there until I accepted this position in Haslett.

I grew up in Marlette which is located in the thumb of Michigan. During my time there, I played and coached football, basketball, and baseball. When I am not at school, my wife and I are usually camping, hiking, spending time with my brother, spoiling our kitty named Coco, or at Disney World. Throughout the year you will hear many Harry Potter references and my praises and complaints about University of Michigan athletics.
