Mrs. Patricia Merrill, M.Ed.,
I am originally from southwest Arizona. I received my Bachelors degree from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix and my Masters of Education degree from Northern Arizona University. I have been a preschool teacher as well as a high school Spanish teacher. I was a Director for Youth and Family education for a non-profit in Tucson, Arizona for over 11 years. I am also adjunct faculty for Northwest University, out of Kirkland WA. I have been married to my best friend for 32 years, we have three grown sons and three grandchildren.
I am excited to be part of the Declo Junior High family. I look forward to partnering with the teaching staff and parents to ensure your students achieve their personal best.
