His class was very fun. There was a lot of fun, humor, kahoot, referenes to pop culture, and inside jokes that still exist to this day. When paired with Miss Verre, the class becomes even better. He LITERAllY came up with 282 ways to prepare for the regents AND 15 study tips!! His class was fun, enjoyable, and exciting, as I always looked forward to Earth Science at the end of the day. now that I've graduated, I miss his class most of all.

Mr Murray was HILARIOUS and was the best science teacher I've ever had! he's SO TOUGH and doesn't really care about ur problems but that's okay u should be concerned on studying in this class anyways. Also LISTEN DURING CLASS, he literally throws out test questions AND answers them in the middle of his lectures. He preps u really well for the regents and u better study bc if u don't ull fail. I got a 96!! He also hates wise guys( ahem naman). Anyways good luck in this class cuz ull need it.

Very funny and makes me look foward to earth science every day but is by far the least helpful teacher i have ever had. He does not explain the material throughouly and will not reexplain to save your life. He has caused me to fail so much due to his lack of explaining

Mr. Murray is hilarious. Makes a lot of jokes and makes fun of the wise guys in the class. His tests are really hard and so are his quizzes so you have to prepare. Overall one of the best teachers.

He really prepares you for the regents. He actually can explain the material and doesn't just have us read the textbook. But Don't just say "I don't get it" if you have a question or he won't answer

He's OKAY. He's a great teacher but he's sorta scary. Strictness is a quality i admire in him. He has great control over ppl & yet has a sense of humor. Explains well.
