Really gets the job done. Hes all about making sure you pass his class. If you miss a lab, he will make you come in on a certain day, or else lunch detention. Get on his good side by raising your hand and participating. Otherwise you're gonna have a rough year. To many people he will appear like a Earth Science Drill Sergant who if you mess with you will pay. Other people like me enjoys his humor and thinks he teaches great.

Mr. Murphy got me interested and excited about science, he was the most influential teacher at Vestal and probably one of the main reasons Im in graduate school for science now. Thank you for everything Mr. Murphy!!!!

Mr. Murphy taught me Earth Science back around 1985. The fact that he put up with my antics without blowing his top says much. Easily one of the better teachers I had back in high school. Glad to see he's still teaching.
