Ms. Carey Purkey
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am very excited to be here and am looking forward to a great year of learning. I feel fortunate that I will be embarking on my 19th year of teaching in a new grade level with a great group of kids that I worked with last year!
I knew from a young age that I would continue in the footsteps of my grandmother who taught in a one room schoolhouse in Kansas and become an educator. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Southern Colorado, now known as CSU-Pueblo, in Social Sciences with an emphasis in Elementary Education and a minor in Reading. I pursued and obtained my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Reading from Grand Canyon University.
I have been teaching for Jordahl for the past nine years and love the community we are a part of. Jordahl is truly a school where we encompass teaching the whole child and strive for greatness. We have a great year of learning experiences planned and I cannot wait to learn about fourth grade along with my students!
