Mr. Purchas is nice even though I never had him, my bf said that he is nice, and hard working, he likes Mr. Purchas as his teacher because he makes you work unlike some of the other teachers.

Great gym teacher, it takes forever for him to get through the attendance. And like the other ratings given, he IS like a drill sergeant. Overall, an excellent physical education teacher.
