Mr. Merritt Arnold
Greetings, I’m Merritt Arnold.
I attended Auburn University, (War Eagle) for my undergrad work. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 1993. Seven years later I earned my Master's degree in Education Leadership from Georgia College and State University (Go Bobcats). Then in 2008 I earned my Specialist degree in Elementary Education from The University of Georgia (Go Dawgs).
This will be my twenty third year of teaching children in elementary schools. I have taught in four different school systems in Georgia; one year as an In-School-Suspension teacher; two years as a third grade teacher; one year as a fourth grade teacher; and a whopping eighteen years in fifth grade (teaching Science and other subjects every year). This year I am teaching Science. I am also very excited about focusing on STEM and PBL activities both around aquaponics and other topics.
