Ms. Murphy has created an "outdoor classroom" -- learning spaces where students can undertake environmental projects. As the school librarian, she held various book fairs to make low-cost books available to all school children and students who could not afford to make a purchase.
She assists colleagues with special needs children to acquire the skills and knowledge required to use assistive devices.
Ms. Murphy has volunteered to change her teaching assignments to accommodate emerging needs in the school by enrolling in courses to further enhance her teaching abilities and knowledge (school librarian, science, home economics, etc.)
She is the founding chairperson of the province's first small school council, which provided the impetus for Memorial University's Diploma in Rural Education and Tele-learning, and an elected member of the executive council of the Newfoundland and Labrador Teacher's Association.
