I have been serving Abilene ISD since July 1986. This is my 20th year as school secretary at Purcell Elementary. I am a very informal person, the students/parents/faculty/staff call me Ms. Rhonda. I have been married to my husband, Tim, since May 1992 and we have two daughters, Kiley and Kaitlyn. I am an AISD product. I went to school at Bowe, Jefferson, and graduated from Cooper High School in 1986. Both daughters are Cooper High graduates. Our daughters also graduated from The University of Texas Austin in May 2019 and May 2021. Hook’em! I love being campus secretary at Purcell Elementary. My mission is to love and serve everyone who enters Purcell Elementary. I consider Purcell Elementary faculty, staff, students, and parents as family. It has been with great pride to see former students return to Purcell with their own children. My favorite response from parents/former students, Ms. Rhonda, you’re still here!
