Hello!  Hola!  My name is Mrs. Mary Murphy and this is my 18th year here at PHS and my 22nd year teaching Spanish.  Seven years ago I joined the AVID Tribe here at Pacifica by teaching AVID 9, which I love!!!  I am happily married to Frank who I have known since I was a Freshman in high school and we have three children Deirdre, Declan, and Michaela ranging from 15 to 10 years old.  They keep us busy after school with Swim and Water Polo!  My oldest daughter has just started high school, so we are navigating the waters of Remote Learning together, some days better than others!!
This year I am teaching Spanish 3 (periods 2 & 3) and I serve as the Co-Department Chair of the World Language department.  During period 1 I am teaching AVID 9.  During period 4, our ASB Leadership class meets and we plan events and support events on and off campus, and this year virtually! 
In addition, I am the advisor of our program called Mariner Mentors where our 11th and 12th grade Mentors help to guide the 9th graders who are new to our campus.  
Below you will find the links to my AVID 9,  Spanish 3, and ASB syllabi for this year.  
Let's have a great 2020-2021 year! Go Mariners!!!
We've got this!  We will persevere!  
Mrs. Murphy (Señora Murphy)
