    It's Fabulous in First Grade!

    Hello, my name is Tara Glass-Purifoy. This will be my 25th year teaching first grade.
    I've taught at Lewis Elementary, Hill Elementary and currently here at Norwood Elementary.
    I received my B.S degree in Elementary Education from Miles College. 
    I also hold an AA and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Alabama State University.
    I love to shop, spend time with my family & friends, and I love to sing.
    I chose to teach because I was called to the profession. I love learning and consider myself a 
    life-long student. My objective is to be an effective, masterful teacher while creating a fun, safe
    and a risk-free learning environment for my scholars. I look forward to learning as much from my
    scholars, if not more, as I will teach them. My plan is to always continue my professional
    endeavors so that I can offer the best of teaching/learning experiences to each student, and
    provide the most effective social and individual learning opportunities.
    I know that by working together, we can enable each scholar to perform at his or her very best level.  
    It is very important that each parent/guardian be involved in their child’s education as much as

    Thank you for your trust in me and my abilities to educate your child.  I look forward to working
    with each scholar and their parents.

    If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to request a conference or
    e-mail me. My planning time is available in the office.

    Thank you,
    Mrs. Purifoy
