Welcome to Fantastic 1st Grade!
My name is Emily Merkord and I am blessed for the opportunity to teach your children, especially at Scudder! This will be my third year teaching for a public campus and I cannot wait to get started. Scudder Elementary is very dear to me, I truly adore this campus.
Before I began this career, I served as a Pre-K teacher 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 teaching or planning things for us to do at school…..I LOVE to read and collect children’s books, garden, visit Farmer’s Markets, spend time with my kiddos, and watch my husband fly fish. There’s something about a river, a great book, and fly fishing that is very relaxing!!
Some corky things about me.........I love the Leaning Pear or Mandolas; favorite movie is Mary Poppins; book series Harry Potter; the Fall season; favorite subject is reading, writing, and math; favorite phrase to say is Fantabulous; I attend Target on Black Friday for kicks, there are some crazy-funny people!! :):)
