Her teaching method was dry to me. I wasn't feeling excited about the material. She was nice, but it was difficult to make some connections and certain things weren't so clear. Might be because we were prepping for the IB exams. I thought I would do badly based on her grading, but she definitely made me more prepared than I felt. Performed decently on the IB exam thanks to her. Maybe her approach is more direct (this is what you should know) while I do better with lots of connections.
I had ms murphy as a freshman and all i could think about was how hard she was at grading, but now looking back she taught us alot.
Her grading is extremely hard but I think she's just trying to get us to learn on our own. I think it will pay off at the end even though we are all panicking right now.
While I was taking her class, I struggled and really had to push my way through it. Now that I look back she really is a good teacher and I learned a lot. She can be very strict in grading tests tho
A reasonable teacher, she was a good teacher, but her grading is impossibly strict. Getting an A in her class is hard, but you'll learn. She's willing to answer questions even if they are off topic.
I took Freshman IB Bio I with her... most people didn't like her, but I did. Very thorough, although her grading is beyond difficult. But once you learn what you need to study for, it gets so much easier.
Neva had her as a teacher but we talk a lot since she's the Hospice Council Sponsor. She's very giving and she gets more involved than most other teachers.
I couldn't love another teacher more!!! She is BY FAR the BEST teacher ever!!! No one could ever surpass her!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your help!!
she is a really nice person who actually cares about how we do. HL bio isnt so bad once u figure out how to study.
I'm taking sophmore bio as a freshman in college, and everything is clear thanks to her. She's the best, the Ib syllabus is your bible, do not lose it!
OKay u guys i dont know what ur thinking! she might be nice to her upperclassmen, but to the freshmen shes quite the opposite. dont let the food fool u!!!!
Ahhh, who in the world doesn't love Mrs. Murphy? She is just so cool...plus, she bought the best markers ever!
Mrs. Murphy is awesome! who else provides food and the word engorged during class.
She is one of the most interesting teachers in the IB program. She really cares about her students, and is more concerned with them learning the material than grades. She is so funny!!
She makes biology fun... without lack of education!! SWEET!!!
