I graduated from Pine Bluff High School in 1981 and the University of Arkansas in 1985.
I have a BA in History with a Minor in English and a Masters in Educational Administration.
I began teaching at Nashville Junior High in 2001.
This year I am teaching 8th Grade US History.
My daughter, Nancy Gail Purnell, is a Junior at the University of Arkansas. She graduated from Nashville High School in 2012.
I enjoy reading, playing tennis and water sports. I also love going to Fayetteville for Razorback weekends!
