Dennisha Murff, Ph.D.

Murff Consulting Group
Founder and Elementary Principal
Indianapolis, IN
Dr. Dennisha Murff is a district administrator, author, adjunct professor, consultant, and relentless advocate for equitable education. Throughout her career, she has worked to incorporate equity, inclusion, and cultural responsiveness in her work. Dr. Murff is the founder of Murff Consulting Group, LLC, an educational consulting group focused on “cultivating the greatness” within each scholar. She has also launched her podcast series, Education Empowerment Movement. Dr. Murff believes education is the great equalizer. This can only take place when students are provided with a diverse school setting where high expectations are the foundation for learning. This learning environment must include adults who are willing to challenge the status-quo to give students the education they deserve.

As Dr. Murff began teaching, her eyes were opened to the inequities in the school setting. After transitioning to administration, the disparities were glaring not only in school buildings, but across school districts. Dr. Murff pushed towards equitable opportunities while focusing on culturally responsive practices in the school setting. In 2020, she published her book, Culturally Responsive Pedagogy: Promising Practices for African American Male Students. Dr. Murff has also been recognized as the 2020 Indiana Elementary School Principal of the Year by the Indiana Association of School Principals. Dr. Murff has over 23 years of experience in education, including 14 years as an elementary school principal. She has served as an assistant principal and elementary teacher. Dr. Murff and her husband, Darrell Murff, are the proud parents of three amazing children, McKenzie, Lincoln, and Averi.
