Mrs. Stephanie Purvis

This is my fourth year teaching at PKMS. I teach 7th grade ELA and 6th grade Reading.

Although I wanted to be a middle school teacher for as long as I can remember, during my junior year of college at Missouri State University, I decided to change direction and go into advertising instead. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Communications Management and began a nearly 15-year career in advertising, working for clients such as Wal-Mart, McDonald's, Farmland Foods, and Commerce Bank.

A few years ago, I decided to go back to school to pursue my first love of being a teacher and earned my certification in Middle School Language Arts from Avila University.  Further, I earned my Master's degree in Teaching & Learning, also from Avila.

I particularly love middle school and am honored to be able to teach this age group. I truly understand the adage that if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life!  

In my free time, I love to read, scrapbook, and spend time with my family.
