Mrs. Mercer

I love teaching! I especially love teaching first grade. I have been teaching for 25 years even though this is my first year at Oak Grove and my first year at DPS#61. I graduated from a small liberal arts school in southern Iowa in 1989 and again in 2009 with a Master's Degree in Education. I have been teaching in North Carolina for most of my career where I raised my two beautiful children. My husband and I also taught in Guadalajara, Mexico for two years.  We came to Decatur because my husband got a job with the School of Theatre and Dance at Millikin University. 

I love reading, gardening, yoga, home improvement projects and my two amazing grandsons!  I teach yoga here in Decatur.  

I am so looking forward to developing lasting relationships with your child and with your family! Please feel free to contact me at school.
