It is Mr. Murrays first year teaching at Destiny High School, and he says he is excited. During class today we did not do much English work. Instead, we went over the syllabus and class expectations, interviewed a classmate and played 21 questions.Subjective ExampleDuring first period, we were introduced to our dorky new teacher, Mr. Murray. He just moved to Milwaukee from Iowa, where all they do is eat corn and ride tractors. However, Mr. Murray is the best teacher in the world because he lets us listen to music while we work, as long as we dont act like crazy hooligans all of the time. It seems as though this year at Destiny is going to be the most successful school year that any of us have ever been a part of.
