Mr. Murphy was the chillest teacher I've had here. Ever. Classes were laid back and his grading was not too difficult.Tests were very similar to the worksheets he gave us in class. Explanations were always clear, and he was always available for extra help after class. Made math interesting and fun, and always made the lectures engaging. Thanks Mr. Murphy!
He is boring, banal, and does not get his students involved. As well, he does not care if you fail. He will give you the impression that you are doing great, while you are actually failing. He is a terrible teacher.
All the negative reviews here have to do with him being dean of students. Regarding him as a teacher, he is fantastic. Best math teacher I've had at PA.
I never saw these mood swings and i had him for a whole year.he is very organized and helpful. i got 4s in class, but got a 5 on the AP, he prepares you well!
I now love math! Don't sleep through class; he'll call you and wake you up. He's also a great Cluster Dean
Mr. Murphy helped me turn things around and get headed on the right track. I am so grateful to him for everything he did for me.
He is a nice a funny guy. He does know math and how to teach. Its kind of him to do MATH CAMP. He is moody though, angstier than the whole class put toghether.
Pmizzle is the man! Good teacher, good dean..just a cool cool cat.
Never had him as a teacher but working with him through the cluster has been great. I like him a lot and have so much respect for him. He's really a great person.
I can't say enough good things about this guy. He is just the best!...clear, helpful, fun. First rate!
mr murphy is the moodiest person i have ever met in my life. good day: he smiles, says hi, calls you by your first name. bad day: he frowns, acts mean... unpleasant to be with. nevertheless, he's a fair teacher and an awesome cluster dean!
A really nice guy. Makes sure we're all on board both academically and emotionally. I do worry that he hates me though....
He's a great teacher. He really goes the extra mile to help students out. Love the hand outs, but he's not a fan of giving partial credit.
Mr. Murphy is one of the few teachers who genuinely cares about his students. He is the best cluster dean on campus. He makes sure to knows everyone's names, and sits with everybody on the couches and watches TV during the munches. He's a class act.
Murph has serious mood swings. Catch him on a good day, he's your best friend. Catch him on a bad day, and STAY AWAY. He's a good teacher though, and he isn't too difficult. Watch out with partial credit on tests though. He's not enormously generous.
so he doesn't make the best cluster dean ever... but whatever he's pretty cool... don't let people tell you he's wicked hard either... he's a really good teacher and his tests aren't that bad
Mr. Murphy is the man, and the best cluster deam Flagg has ever seen. YA FLAGGSTAFF!
