"All About Me"




        My name is Mrs. Marianne Purdy and I am one of tweleve 1st grade teachers at the ECC.


        I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance from Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia.  After returning home, I decided to go back to school for a second degree and Teaching Certification in Elementary Education at Lebanon Valley College.  I have a Masters of Science Education at Lebanon Valley College.  I reside in Hershey with my husband McDaniel, our daughter Rayann "Raya" and our two golden retrievers Halie and Rylee. 


        My primary goal is for your child to experience success and to have a positive year in 1st grade.  I hope to provide a fun, safe, nurturing and exciting learning community where all children can flourish.  I love to teach and I know it will be a wonderful year of learning and sharing with all my students.
