Welcome to Bear Branch Sixth Grade.
My name is Melinda Purdy, and I teach Language Arts at this campus. I am beginning my twelfth year of teaching in this district. Prior to coming to Magnolia, I taught sixth grade Language Arts in Spring ISD for seven years. My teaching experience has also included teaching fourth grade for seven years in my hometown of White Settlement, Texas. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan College (University) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and English Specialization.
Education Philosophy: I believe that every student is important. When given the right environment, he can achieve his fullest potential. My goal is to provide that environment with respect, dignity, stability, moral soundness, and humor.
Teaching is my passion, and I look forward to another great year.
