I had Mr. Murphy my freshman year and I can honestly say that he is one of my favorite teachers. He is very sweet and understanding and very relaxed. He gets distracted when people move around when he teaches but as long as you pay attention and listen, you'll realize that he is a very smart and knowledgeable person. Make sure to do a little dance of joy if you get him. He is wonderful :)
SUPER FUNNY GUY! once you realize he is just weird you will love the class
He is so chill. All my other friends with the other teachers are struggling so much and I just laugh because Mr Murphy is so easy yet gets the information across, great sense of humor too.
He is probably the nicest and funniest teacher at Chantilly High School. Does his job well too. Teaches rugby like a boss
Mr. Murphy is my favorite English teacher ever! He seems kind of intimidating at first, but in reality he's hilarious! He grades pretty strictly, but only to prepare you for AP. He really cares about his students.
Mr. Murphy is an amazing English teacher who genuinely cares about his students and tries to help them pass his class. No one has ever dropped his class yet and theres a reason for that.
Coolest teacher ever!!! He goes off on random tangents but always comes back to what he's talking about and is really helpful. He loves to suggest movies :) He's just awesome, you'll love him.
Mr. Murphy is AMAZING!!! he is a hard grader but a reallly nice guyyy!!!!!!!! :))
one piece of advice if you get him, DO NOT crack water bottles near him, it drives him mad, otherwise he's a great teacher(:
He does not teach well and is the hardest grading english teacher I have ever had.
Great class for discussion. He's a super nice guy, one of my fave teachers, and as long as you're not obnoxious or annoying you'll do just fine.
He is a good teacher and a nice guy. He is the rugby coach -definitely check that out. I found he did prepare me for AP Lang. Has a few quirks and OCD, can get off topic, but I didn't mind. Recommend.
He is a great techer, it was very relaxed. He also kept using things from his past experiences to help us relate to the topic at hand. I wold defiantely recommend having him.
mr. murphy is awesome. im in pre ap english 10- everytime i ask a question he helps me actually understand it. he has OCD and doesnt like crunching bag noises or shuffling papers, haha but he is great
Mr. Murphy is such a cool teacher :D I love going to his class. I love English this year
He has his quirks but is a good teacher, though I do not know if he prepares you for AP Lang, guess I'll find out this year. He is a little exploitable thoug. No one should get less than a B.
awesome teacher!!! such a nice guy. Very helpful. I'm glad to of had him this year.
maybe you dont like him because he failed you for good reason... you probably slept too much in class, and never put in any effort in class... MR. MURPHY ROCKS!!!!!
Such a cool teacher.. I didnt do much to get and A for the year.. but do all the HW, quizes and test are easy. the books we have to read he reads them out loud to the class. My favorite soph. teacher!
I was his aide this year, and he was one of the nicest teachers I've met. Personally, I think he's TOO nice, as some people got away with so much. Nonetheless, you will enjoy the class if you get him.
He failed you because you grammer is terrible!!! Nice guy. Won't let kids get away with a lot. Doesn't have many grades so don't blow off any home work or quizes.
friggin' sweeeet. not just a good teacher, but a genuinely good person. more people should be like him.
Ah! Mr Murphy has been my best teacher this year! He's made me feel like I might amount to something in the english field. the class is way easy and fun and he came to coffee house! 300+ points!
Mister Murphy rocks my socks. He is so cool. He makes everything so easy and understandable. Thanks for being a good teacher!
no doubt Mr.Murphy will make you like the class if not the subject matter. If there is a more powerful teacher i havent met him.
really cool guy,fun class,great convos, great teacher, did my hw cuz id feel bad if i didnt cuz hes such a good guy/teacher.so funny how he gets into books
Actually cares when kids do work, really tries to teach us at a level everyone should be able to understand!Great teacher!!
love you, murphy, i met my sweetheart in your class. thanks (1999-2000)
The coolest teacher ever...oh ya and the best rugby coach there is....go nova u19
A living god. Perhaps the brightest and best teacher working today. If nominated in 2004, sure to take the presidency.
Mr murphy is great i look forward to his class i love his story bout college. and puting his brothers food over his head.ilaugh at him when he gets into books
Mr. Murphy is as good as a rugby coach as he is as an english teacher. (That's really good.)
