Principal – Mr. Travis Brown

I would like to welcome all our Bulldog community to R.J. Murray Middle School. Our school motto is “One Team, No Limits” and that is best exemplified by the ideal that we are all working together to ensure our students reach their maximum potential. RJMMS has a rich and historic past and our students have a very bright future. By working together, we can ensure our students reach and exceed all of their goals.

Throughout my instructional career I have served in many roles. I began my career teaching a variety of subjects in the social sciences before transitioning to the role of Program Specialist for Secondary Social Studies and Advanced Programs for SJCSD. In 2015, I moved to the position of Assistant Principal at St. Augustine High School and oversaw Curriculum and Guidance.

In 2019 I was fortunate enough to be offered the opportunity to become Principal of R.J. Murray Middle School. As a lifelong learner and advocate for students, I feel very fortunate having the opportunity to join the RJMMS Bulldog Family!

Assistant Principal – Dr. Esther Seward


I have a passion for children and strive to make a positive impact in the lives of the students I encounter daily. My career as an educator began 20 years ago in the Broward County Public Schools as a 6th grade teacher. I taught middle school for eight years, which includes serving students at Fruit Cove and Pacetti Bay Middle.

Prior to coming to Murray, I served as an Assistant Principal here in St. Johns County for six years at John A. Crookshank, Cunningham Creek, and The Webster School. My administrative experience also extends to the secondary level where I served for three years in Jacksonville, Florida for Duval County Public Schools at Highlands Middle School, and two years in Northern Virginia for Prince William County Schools at Rippon Middle School.

My educational experience includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Barry University in Miami, Florida; Master’s Degree in Math Education, Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership, and a Doctorate Degree in Education with a major in Organizational Leadership and a minor in Human Resource Development from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

I am excited to begin my 20th year in education as the Assistant Principal of R.J. Murray Middle School. I am thrilled to be part of a community committed to and invested in the success of our student body. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the students, parents, staff, and community of R. J. Murray Middle School.
