Fifth Grade Science and Social Studies Teacher
My students call me Mrs. Merickle. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in 2015 with a degree in K-6 education. I have been teaching since 2015. I spent the last 4 years teaching 5th grade writing and homeroom science at Oakmont Elementary. I was born in California, raised in Arizona, and married into Tennessee. I currently live in McEwen with my husband Travis. We have a son and a daughter, Austin and Isabelle (Izzy). I have 1 dog (Duke) and 1 cat (Baby). Interesting facts: I can water ski, and I have been to almost all 50 states except South Dakota, North Dakota, Hawaii, and Alaska. I love to cook and read. Most of all, I am excited to start my new adventure at Sullivan Central Elementary!
