Ms. E. Ann Purvis, M.Ed., NBCT Exceptional Needs Specialist
I have been in the field of education for 30+ years. My decision to go into education was a carefully thought out process and one that I have not regretted for one minute. I have taught in private, parochial, and public settings. After graduation from Francis Marion University, I worked in the business world before going into public education. My career in education covers early childhood through adult education. My areas of certification include: Early Childhood, Elementary, Learning Disabilities, Mental Disabilities, and National Board Certified for Exceptional Needs Birth to Twenty-one. My undergraduate degree was in Early Childhood Education from Francis Marion College and my Master's Degree in Education is from Francis Marion University. Education is a vital part of everyone's world and there are so many different ways to learn. My philosophy has always been to strive to reach as many students (old and young) as you can through whatever means available, never give up, and most of all, never stop learning yourself. Everyone should learn something new each and every day.
