A teacher is a teacher, sounds like these other kids want her as a friend. I got enough friends. I just want a good teacher who knows her stuff. That is her.
I found Mrs. Murphy to be stiff and often judgemental. I was a kid who did well in school but could have used a kind word and often got the opposite.
A decent teacher, but not very personable. Didn't seem to enjoy what she was doing.
Whoever said she was tough, you are wrong! She is an understanding teacher - you have no clue how hard it must be to fail that class. Just do your work!
