I am a former student of Mr. Purcell's from the mid 70s. He is the best teacher I had at Danbury High School. Why? He prepared me for my undergraduate years at Boston College. His exams and writing assignments laid the groundwork for what I could expect as an undergraduate.
To this day, I clearly remember his classes on the French and Russian revoloutions. I especially enjoyed visiting the U.S.S.R.

He is a great teacher and makes things very interesting. However, he tends to pick favorites and stay with them to the point where it isolates others in class.

The hardest teacher in the school, and tends to be inconsiderate of his less-apt students. Still, easily the best teacher of honors students in the school.
