Mrs. Meredith Purser
This is my first full year of teaching (I popped in around Thanksgiving last year!), and I am so excited to be at Spanish Fort Middle for this new adventure! I graduated from the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science in 2002, so I am a proud math and science nerd at heart. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2007 with a BA in Communications, and I spent the next several years working at UA in Digital Media and website design. After moving to The Fort a few years ago, I became a substitute teacher in the district and realized that I had finally found my place! Teaching felt like coming home.
I'm now certified in Florida and Alabama to teach Middle School Math. I teach both Math 8 (prealgebra) and Algebra 1, and I am the Math Counts coach. We had a great team last year, and I know that this year will be awesome as well!
My husband and I have two sons who are also in the SF schools. My oldest son, Zander, is joining me at SFMS this year. My youngest, Wyatt, will be spending another great year at SFES. We absolutely love our community, and I am so thankful that our journey led us here!
I love Alabama football, all things Harry Potter, and good jokes.
