Ms. Murphy has worked with potential dropouts to get them back on track and she motivates students to set goals for themselves that will ensure them a real possibility of graduating. Our students love Ms. Murphy and look to her for support and encouragement, which she provides for them continuously. She brings knowledge and skills that she's acquired throughout the years that have proven to be very effective. She has shared and assisted with implementing great classroom management strategies and student engagement activities that have motivated our students and staff in ways that bring about peace and uplifted spirits. Her personality makes everyday a great day and she is so positive in all of her interactions with students. Ms. Murphy has had to make some difficult but necessary conversations with some of the parents of our struggling students and she is able to make it in a positive situation. Parents have really praised her efforts.
