About Me

Mr. Purdy as an Instructor

Growing up in Wisconsin, I have always valued small communities. A classroom is a perfect place for me to find this environment. Forming bonds with a group of people over our love of learning is my passion. I have been in the world of education since I was 14 years old. I am excited to continue my calling in education here at Parras Middle School.

Mr. Purdy Outside of Work
In 2017, I moved from Wisconsin to California to be closer to my dad's family. While he still is in Wisconsin with my brother and mom, my dad has 6 brothers and sisters who live here with their families. I spend a lot of time hanging out with them, grateful to be away from the bitterly cold Midwest. I also love LEGOs, video games, board games, hiking, biking, and kayaking.
