Welcome to magnificent 1st grade!
My name is Emily Merkord and I am blessed to be your child's teacher! I absolutely ADORE my profession and this will be my fifth year teaching 1st grade. I can't wait to get started!
Before I began teaching at Scudder, I taught Pre-K for 12 years. I loved it so much that I pursued additional measures. I obtained my Bachelors in Social Sciences with emphasis in education, and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education at Texas State University. I am EC-6 & ESL certified and GT trained. I am very passionate about teaching EVERY child according to how that child learns best.
When I’m not planning or teaching (basically, taking time off)…..I try to spend all my moments with family. I have a son who's 21 and a daughter that will soon be 18. It's hard to grasp that my husband of and I will soon be "empty nesters", yet I look forward to seeing how their new chapters in life unfold.
Corky things about me.........I love Torchy's Tacos and BJ's Restaurant; Favorite movie is Mary Poppins and Goonies; Favorite book series Harry Potter; I adore the Fall seasons; My favorite phrase to say is Fantabulous!! :):)
