Fairly boring class but can get good grades pretty easily. He seems really smart and like a good writer but we spend like 80% of class reading out loud the rubric for the essay and 20% actually doing stuff about it.

It's no wonder his junior/senior English electives are so hard to get into...Dr. Murphy is the BEST. Only teacher who's ever been able to make me look forward to going to English class.

He's the best english teach I've ever had and he's really good with feedback. He always makes what we're reading interesting and who can't forget his famous, "Coming out of the gates..."?

The best English teacher in Senior School. Witty, down-to-earth, completely relaxed, and a fair grader. His feedback on essays is incredibly helpful.

If you're smart, you'll like Murphy. He doesn't dumb down his classes, so some students don't understand him. That's not his fault; if you're willing to listen, he's fantastic.
