Hello and welcome to Chemistry and Algebra II. I am so excited for the school year. This is my 4th year with Merritt Academy and I can honestly say I love the Merritt Family. I am married with 4 wonderful children and 2 amazing granddaughters. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking and gardening. I love outdoor sports both in the summer and the winter. Two of my favorites are playing on our wave runners and snow skiing. My favorite season of the year is spring. I just love experiencing the revitalization and new growth of all the plants and animals around us! I can't wait to get to know all of you and your parents this year! Let's make it memorable!!
