every day that i go to class i learn less if thats possible. her lectures are boring and irrelevant to the tests. tests are hard, quizzes are strangely easy. probably better than prowell though, just make sure you do your work at home well
If u talk to her and try to get to know her shes really tight but she needs a little respect given her way to make her feel the class is paying attention....the independent work is a joke and u can just say u didnt get that one and she will call on someone else....quizzes and test r the same....gettem murph dog
Just be nice to her and she'll be nice to you. The further you get in the year, the more she warms up. She's actually pretty cool by the end of the year
A very good, sometimes kinda hard teacher. Even though she can be moody, you're really prepared for the AP exam and she provides a very college-like atmosphere to her class. One of Chantilly's finest.
You gotta respect her. The class was alot of independent study, like college. She never really smiles...not that has anything to do with teaching, just something I noticed.
SO much of her class is independent study, but it is greatly helpful since it is an AP class and therefore supposed to ressemble college. I loved having her because if you pay attention, you are greatly rewarded through good test and quiz grades! LOVE HER
Honestly, I think she is a great teacher. She makes things easy to follow. I admire her greatly due to her ability to remain neutral during class debates. She is easy to talk to, always there if you need help, and willing to tell it like it is. Great!
Have her for AP govt and poli sci. Needs to show more personality. Needs to be more balanced in debate and ideals. Tests and quizes are easy. No Hw, projects can be tough, but work on them over time and it is so easy. AP govt is easy!
she has too many T/F questions that are half opinions. The T/F could go either way depending on how you looked at it.
jsut remember the trex scene from jurrasic park if you try and skip class...you know the water ripples.
A little blunt, but she is a good teacher. I had her for govt and poli sci. She never really gets biased, and I respect her greatly. Knows alot on govt!!!!
Mrs. Murphy is very smart and encourages her students. She was always respectful and urged us to follow our interests.
not too much work, tests are kinda tough, quizzes aren't too bad. But they are worth too much in my opinion. each question on a test is worth 8 pts.
She knows how to teach just sometimes she can be unfair
Mrs. Murphy has great respect for her students and always had well planned class lessons. I had her in 98-99 for AP Gov't, her political chats were inspiring.
Murphy teaches well, understands that students are people too.
