All About Mrs. Purdie...

My name is Andrea Purdie and I have been teaching for the past 15 years.  I have taught both 4th and 1st grades.  I graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood where I met my husband, Shawn Purdie.  I have my National Board Certification and was in the Top 5: Teachers of the Year for Bay District Schools in 2013.

Shawn and I have three wonderful children that all attend Bay Haven; Austin will be in seventh grade this year, Sawyer in 4th grade, and Ansley in 2nd grade.  We love animals! We have a Golden Retriever named Maddie, 2 cats, and lots of fish.

 In my free time, I enjoy READING, going to church, being at the lake or beach, playing both board and card games, going to the movies, and just hanging out at home with family and friends.
