|“||Alright, class. Today we are starting on a new physics project! This will test everything you've learned about gravity, inertia and weight distribution, all things I utilized in making this… beautiful desk.||”|
— Ms. Murawski, Sunny Side Up
Ms. Murawski is a science teacher at Jefferson County Middle School. Her desk is very important to her.
She is voiced by Sarah Chalke.
Ms. Murawski is extremely close to her desk and tends to bring it up in most conversations. She speaks of it with rich fondness and caresses it often, more often than not getting distracted by it while she's teaching the class. She becomes rather jealous at the thought of others being around it.
She seems to enjoy woodwork and has made a number of objects aside from her desk, including her chair, and at least one of the pencils in the classroom. She can be quite protective of these objects, too, reminding Melissa that's she'd made the pencil she was holding.
Otherwise, Ms. Murawski is passionate about science, and she's very excited to teach the students about it. When bringing up a sample of marine life, she's thrilled at the catch and calls the students to gather around and help her identify it. She seems very proud of her students when they do well on their projects.
Ms. Murawski was the first teacher to suggest running off into the wild when they got shipwrecked on a class field trip, and the others promptly followed her.
Ms. Murawski is a very slender woman with fair skin, dark eyes, and a gentle face with a very prominent nose. Her hair is dark brown and tied back in a high bun, with two long curls coming down either side of her face.
She wears a brown belt with a large, round belt buckle over a light beige blouse with shoulder-length sleeves. Her skirt is knee-length and tan, and she wears a pair of tall, dark brown high heeled boots and a thick red scarf alongside her large, gold hoop earrings.
In Sunny Side Up, she assigned her class an egg dropping project to see what they learned about gravity, inertia and weight distribution. She and everyone on the ground, save for Melissa, hid when Milo's team was up. She gave the three an A on their project.
In Some Like it Yacht, she was stranded on an island after the school board's yacht was shipwrecked. She and the rest of the faculty, except for Mr. Drako, went 'feral' within seconds of being marooned. She and the rest of the teachers followed Diogee to the repaired yacht after he took their scepter. They made it on board just as a tidal wave carried the boat out to sea. They made it to shore and inadvertently won just enough money in a surfing contest to fix the yacht.
In Backward to School Night, she, Martin Murphy, Eileen Underwood, and Richard Chase turned into toddlers after being hit by a mysterious ray. They were looked after by the parents' children until they were returned to their proper ages.
In Teacher Feature, Ms. Murawski dives into the sewers in a desperate attempt to save her desk. After both of them are saved by Scott, she decides to ask him out on a date. The two of them go to a restaurant together, and later to the movie theatre, but when the kids finally ask her if she'd be seeing him again, her response was a strong 'no'.

“Alright, class. Today we are starting on a new physics project. This will test everything you've learned about gravity, inertia and weight distribution, all things I utilized in making this… beautiful desk. Solid oak. Took me the better part of twenty-one weeks… weeks of solitude. Just… me and… the wood.”
“Uh, if you, if uh, if you work hard, someday you, too, may own a special desk. Not this one, though; this one's mine.”
“You know, I made that pencil you're holding.”
“We have a winner! Team Milo gets an A. You three did it! I'm so proud of you.”
“Oh! Children gather round! We're about to bring in our first sample of marine life. Oh, isn't he cu — Can anyone identify this? Seriously, what is this? because I cannot see a thing.”
“I'd like to welcome you all to back to school night! Kids, please step outside so we can talk about you behind your backs.”
“Huh. Did she talk about her desk the whole time? Because I think I must have zoned out.”
