Murphy is one of those teachers you love but also find slightly frustrating. She is a wonderful person at heart, and showers us with doughnuts and small prizes. She is super nice. However, her teaching is somewhat confusing and hard to follow. She makes her tests incredibly hard, but it prepares you for the AP Calc test really well. She also hands out a lot of extra credit to make up for the hard tests. Overall, I would still recommend her despite her lack of clarity--definitely over Linton.

She's a terrible teacher. No one can understand what she says and she's socially awkward. You ask for help, she gives you a lower grade and gets mad. She's crazy! But I did like her class cause its like elementary school and I didn't have to do any work.

Mrs. Murphy is a very nice and good-humored teacher but her lessons can be a bit...frustrating. They aren't as clear as students wish they were. She messes up several times thoughout her daily lessons which makes students feel a bit hopeless. However, a bit of active listening on the student's part makes the difference between an A and a B. Cheers

Amazing teacher! I don't know why everyone is dumping on her. I have her for AP Calculus AB and she actually makes it entertaining/fun! She gives you so many opportunities for extra help, it's really great! As long as you do the homework every night, you'll be ok. Oh and ask her questions (good ones not stupid ones) :)
