Ms. Merrill is a science teacher, she teaches 7th and 8th grade. She also coaches the school's girls basketball team. She has been teaching at Springville Jr. High for two years. Jade Murray, one of her 8th-grade students said, “Ms. Merrill is fun and always has a positive attitude. She gives examples to help me learn better when I don’t fully understand something.” Another 8th-grade student Ammon Taylor said, “She always tries to make class interactive. I like how Ms. Merrill is strict on the rules and helps us achieve our goals.” Ms. Merrill said she became a teacher because both of her parents were teachers, she loves a-ha moments and loves her coworkers. Her favorite thing to do in her free time is to play basketball and spend time with her family. She loves to get to know her students and watch them progress throughout the year. We love having Ms. Merrill as a part of our school at Springville Jr. High School!
