She left the ordinary level students at the back of the class to study, while she taught the rest of the class. I did not agree with how she spoke to us a lot of the time. She would snap for no reason at the nicest of students. She had a terrible attitude towards the students and didn't actually seem to like her job. It was as if we were beneath her. She certainly did not speak to the other teachers in the same tone as she did the pupils. I dreaded her class and began to dislike biology
I absolutely loved having Ms Murphy.. she is such a smart woman. Extremely organised. Extremely helpful and observant and she cares about her students work!,She is an extremely kind woman and went through a horrible tragedy whilst teaching me, a fellow teacher passed away and she still came in and helped us all for our Leaving certificate. I was delighted to get a B in my exam and i only her to thank!
She is the teacher I will always remember with respect from Coolmine, firm but fair. I did well in the leaving cert because of Ms Murphy. She's a lovely person too but students don't get to see this side until you've finished the year, I respect that in her.
A great teacher.
Very tough...but extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
10/10 would fail her classes again
Lots of people complained about her attitude (me included), but the only reason she's ever given anyone a hard time was when they just haven't put the effort in. I remember the times she did far more than she had to do, missing her break so that I could do tests I missed/failed rather than just leaving me with no results, supervising study sessions she organised even when barely anyone showed up, convincing me I could do better than I was already doing. Do what she asks and you'll help yourself.
Amazing teacher. So nice outside of class. A bit uptight in class but she really does know how to drill the subject into you. Really good at explaining stuff and her questions to the class really help, especially how she lets us look for the answer in the book when we don't know it.
Fantastic teacher. she seems to just hate everyone though. She gets the job done though and shes amazing at explaining the stuff to you. Good sense of humour on a good day. But on a bad day SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND DO YOUR WORK!
A very helpful person and a good teacher!! A bit of advice tho.....DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!!!
Excellent teacher. A for me in JC science. But man was she moany. Outside of class was always up for a laugh but she ran a very tight ship in class. Her tests were always rock hard too. For results shes the teacher to have
great teacher but really uptight loosen up and have more fun
good teacher puts too may notes in da journal should lighten up
Excellent teacher, was privledged to be in her class.
Brillant teacher,but fifth year biology is hard and with her teaching it is very difficult. She can explain like no other but is very hard to honouur her tests
excellent at explaining everything,but she could be just as good if she treated students with respect(at least the good ones!)
first things first:excellent teacher.unbelievably two faced.she's out of order the way she treats students(even the good ones)
good teacher,but scary at times!!think thats why we done well
A good teacher a bit moany though culd lighten up a lil
Brilliant teacher but she either likes you or not. If she doesn't, god help you, iv been there and hated her but her teaching compensates!
Helped me overcome my science block and spent loads of time helping me with 2nd order integration. A very well adjusted teacher who treats pupils as adults.
Very good and dedicated teacher, science wasn't a strong subject for me but she was helpful at the same time.
very very good,clear lots of A1s for biology classes

One of my favourite teachers and finally a teacher who really cares about her students. Great trip to zoo in 6th year. Really easy to talk to.
Good teacher but everyone can do well in LC science anyway, it's designed that way
good teacher but sometimes hard to understand but DO NOT GET ON HER BADSIDE
