    Welcome to Fourth Grade!

     

    Hello, I am Mrs. Purcell, and I will be teaching fourth grade Math and Science. I am a third-year teacher, and this is my first year in Red Lodge. I previously taught two years in Joliet. I started in fourth grade Math and Science and moved to seventh grade ELA, Geography, Montana History, and Reading.

    When I am not at school, you can find me hunting, fishing, hanging around the Fire Station, or hanging out with my dog.  

    I am excited for this year with all of you. If you are curious about what is happening in the classroom, take a look at my lesson plans or hop into google classroom. If you have questions, concerns, comments, etc., please feel free to email or call.
