Mrs. Merritt's Math Class
 
Welcome to 7th grade math!!  I am so excited to be starting another school year.  This will make my 4th year at Oak Grove Middle School, but my 11th year teaching middle school math.  I graduated from Kentucky Christian University in the spring of 2008 where I received my bachelors degree in Middle School Education with concentrations in math and social studies. I am originally from Kentucky, but have lived in North Carolina with my family since 2008.  
 
I can't wait to watch your students learn and grow this year.  If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me via email of phone.  carriemerritt@davidson.k12.nc.us   336-474-8250
