• Hello.  My name is Beth Purcell and this is my 4th year at Forbes Middle School.  I have previously taught in Round Rock ISD and at EVHS here in GISD. I am a big proponent of Academic UIL and have been facilitating the program in the GISD elementary and middle schools for the past 12 years.  Many of you may recognize my name from your childrens past participation in Academic UIL programs.

    I am married and have 2 children who are both attending college although neither is at The University of Texas in Austin, which is my alma mater.   My daughter is at the University of Houston and my son is at Texas and M where he is on the waterski team.  My husband is self employed and an avid water-skier and fisherman.  I enjoy waterskiing as well but am not as much of a daredevil as the men in my family.

    Both my parents are former teachers and I value public education and the opportunities it affords all of our children. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of service in any school related manner. I believe in our schools in Georgetown ISD and am more than happy to do what I can to make your experience in GISD the best possible.
