Hello!  Hola!  I am Mary Murphy and this is my 16th year here at PHS and my 20th year teaching Spanish.  Five years ago I joined the AVID family 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 13 to 8 years old.  They keep us busy after school with football and SoCal Water Polo!
This year I am teaching Spanish 3 and I serve as the Co-Department Chair.  During period 3 I am teaching AVID 9, and during periods 1 and 2 I am teaching Spanish 3.  During period 4, our ASB meets and we plan events and support events on and off campus. 
In addition, I am the advisor of our program called Mariner Mentors where our 11th and 12th grade Mentors help and guide the 9th graders who are new to our campus.  
Below you will find the links to my AVID 9 and Spanish 3 syllabi for this year.  
Let's have a great 2018-2019 year! Go Mariners!!!
Mrs. Murphy (Señora Murphy)
