Mrs. Murphy, Social Studies

I have taught 25 years at Climax-Scotts High School, 2 years at Galesburg-Augusta High School, and  4 1/2  years as a Kalamazoo County-wide substitute teacher.

I attempt to reach all student's learning styles through a variety of different presentations of the course material. My classroom and lessons are organized and provide a structured environment in which all students can achieve success. I do have high expectations of both myself and my students.

My family consists of my spouse, my college-aged son, my high school-aged daughter, a large dog and two cats. I enjoy reading, gardening, camping, fishing and working on cars.

Advice for Climax-Scotts Students: Always do your personal best ... don't slack off.
