Mrs. Michelle Purgerson

As a University of North Texas graduate, I have received a BA in History and MS in Educational Leadership. I have had the privilege of graduating from Plano West in 2008 and beginning my career in education in Plano as well. This is my 10th year teaching in public education and my 9th year teaching at Williams High School. At Williams, I have taught World Geography, Honors World Geography, AP Human Geography, Humanities, World History, and AP World History. 

My husband is also a former Plano student, graduating from Plano Senior in 1996. Some of our favorite hobbies are walking our corgi Winnie, going to our deer lease, hiking and fly fishing in New Mexico, and eating at new restaurants in Plano. As an avid reader, here are some books I have read in the last year: The Keeper of Happy Endings, Killers of the Flower Moon, A Court of Thorns and Roses Series, The Six Wives of Henry VIII, and A History of the World in Six Glasses. When I am not reading, I love to cook and play video games.
