Honestly she has her expectations way to high, and shes pretty mean and treats you like a child (sometimes I wonder if Im in an applied class. She is way too stuck to the curriculum and has little to no fun in her class.
If your taking grade 11 law and get Murray like I did this year, switch to Bonazza, she sticks to the textbook to much. If you do good on her first test and do your homework she's nice to you.
Murray is extremely intelligent and informed... she is the only teacher I had at Sir Winston that demonstrated a genuine approach to teaching. She cares a lot about her students. She is a difficult marker and her expectations are greater than other teachers at Sir Winston (that is not a stretch). Students who dislike her are often lazy and need a scapegoat for their lack of effort.
The best teacher I have ever had. She is so nice and kind... A pure human being. If you dont like to work for your grades, than you will not like her. She is fair to everyone, but students that don't like her are the lazy ones. Best menor I ever had. Prepare you for the world and tells you how it is. :)
If you are looking for a teacher who will coddle you and tell you what a great job you are doing for that sole purpose, then look elsewhere. If you want a teacher who knows their subject, marks fairly, and prepares you well for the future, then you have your teacher.
So under-appreciated and so underestimated. She marks fairly and knows how to prepare you for university. Murray is awesome!!
Amazing teacher! I loved attending her class and she is one of the nicest teachers I have had in a long time.
nicest teacher ive ever had, she was always so helpful, even when i didnt have her for class. :)
She's really nice... it's just that she gives out a lot of homework. But I learned a lot about WW1, WW2 and the Great Depression during her History class in grade 10
She's a good teacher. But for history he's awful because she assumes everyone knows how to write history essays. But I did learn my stuff. Very unfashionable!
I don't see why people don't like her. she's a nice person and a good teacher.
makes too many assumptions towards her students who arent as smart as the rest... often quickly accusing them of cheating or not handing in their work and stuff liek that when they DID
She does try, however she's a very hard marker and usually seems frustrated with her students. I think she expects people to already know things without learning about them first.
I've heard that she gives hard working students who deserve 90's, 80's and refuses to give anything higher than 85%.
she may be a hard teacher but she is a good teacher.
What essay do you expect me to write in 1 HOUR!!!??? She never attempts to explore student's work - that is why she always says that it is unclear.
she's a nice teacher, she's kind of spacey looking. likes to stick to her own opinions though, picks on some students.
