Funny chill dude. Interesting interactive leassons. Leassons are often paired with interesting books we have to read. Can Get side tracked. Quizzes really mostly on memory. Do what you are supposed to do and you will be fine :)

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 :)

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
