Ms Murray kind of scared me when i had her as a science teacher. That being said, I will never forget what eutrophication is and she definitely taught me a lot. I didn't enjoy her classes much while I was in them but looking back I realize that she was actually a pretty good teacher.

I had ms murray for all four years of my high school years. She would never explain anything differently if you did not understand. She picked on students for no reason other than she didn't like you. Something she said to me when she asked me how well I had done on the past two quizzes in front of the class was "Oh you think I am picking on you right? Clearly not hard enough cause I am still smiling". I used to think even though she was a horrible person, she may be a good teacher but she's not

She's nice when you do exactly what she wants you to do. She frightens me and I wanna cry. Her classes stress me out. She makes me feel bad when I don't do my homework, even when I have a good reason. I feel like i'm not a good person in her class. I know she means well but I don't really like her.

a lot of people dislike ms. murray because she can be really mean and scary but she is actually an amazing teacher. the majority of times she gets mad at students is over them not putting their full effort in. she really cares about students and wants them to do their best and she is always always there to help, even when you don't want it

Ms. Murray seems to make judgement about each student that walks through her door, and if she decides that she doesn't like you, you honestly may as well drop the class. I have never met someone as rude or condescending in my life, and I was genuinely terrified to go to class every day. She does know her stuff, but I'd rather fail than take her class again.

she is incredibly insulting and rude. Never in a good mood and completely unforgiving. Insults students and their intelligence. And extremely hard course.

I know Ms Murray can be passive aggressive and even scary, but bear with her. She's an amazing science teacher and she really knows her stuff. If you pay attention and do the homework, you'll do well.

Ms. Murray is a really good teacher overall. She explains things thoroughly and is fair in her teaching strategy. To succeed in her class you must attend, take notes, do your homework, ask questions, and pay attention to detail! As a person she is slightly prone to becoming flustered when things don't go her way. Lately she has been working on being nicer, though, and I think overall she is nice and has good intentions, even if she's a little unpleasant at times, she really can be a sweetheart.

Okay so she is a tough teacher but she lets you know when you are not doing what she expects of you and that is pretty decent then its up to you to sink or swim...and there is no second guessing what is expected about you, so she is decent and I think I'm learning something in science whether she is my friend or not!

I think Ms. Murray can be easily misunderstood. She's not mean or unfair, she just wants people to truly care about their work.

in all fairness she really wants everyone to do well in her class, and cares.... but on my second day ever in her class, i told her i didnt understand my homework, and she said "i dont beleive that coming from you" so maybe, just possibly, she is a little judgemental, hmm?

Ms. Murray is super nice... its just that annoying grade 9s get on her bad side.... if I were in her situation I would be mean to them too. She definitely is willing to help if its needed and cares a lot for her students.
