Hi! I'm Ms. Merchant! I'm super excited to be a part of the faculty at Judson High School, and even more excited to be your child's teacher!
I'm originally from West Virginia where I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Concord University. Upon graduating, I taught in a local elementary school as a Reading Resource teacher. After teaching in WV for a year, I decided that I wanted to move to Texas, where I then began my teaching and coaching career at Judson Middle School. In 2016, I had the opportunity to move up to Judson High School to teach in the Human Services Pathway and become Assistant Cheer Coach. After six years as Assistant, I was blessed to earn the title of Judson Rockets Head Cheer Coach. I am also the JHS Student Council Advisor- another title which I love.
While the past few years in education have been a little different, I am looking forward to helping my students get on track for a successful future. I want to assure you that I am here every step of the way to make sure my students are as successful as possible. For this school year, I have the privilege of teaching Instructional Practices. This incredible course dives into teaching and learning in the most unique way- by giving students a hands-on approach to learning. IP students will learn what it takes to be an incredible teacher, as well as getting the opportunity to be placed in a classroom to gain exposure to education through the lens of a teacher.
Aside from teaching and coaching- I love doing community service, helping others, traveling and spending time with my (extremely spoiled/loved) fur baby- Kash.
If you find yourself in need of some help, please feel free to contact me. I'm always here to help.
