Hi! I am Mrs. Mercer!
I have had the privilege of teaching for 29 years. My first teaching experience was teaching First Grade in Louisiana. I then moved to Jackson and began teaching 3rd Grade in Madison County. After I married, we moved back to Richton where I remained for the past 21 years. I am so excited to now have this opportunity to be working at Petal Middle School as their Interventionist.
As the interventionist, I identify those students that are in need of accommodations. My team and I work closeley together to help those students get the extra help they need. I stay in contact with parents as much as possible to keep them informed of their child's success, and collaborate with the classroom teacher to help design alternative plans that will aide that child to academic success.
My goal is to be a positive role model. I want children to feel safe, to know that they are loved, and hope that when they leave Petal Middle School, that they will be better prepared for the high school adventures yet to come.
I have been married to Shawn Mercer for 27 years. I have two children. Anna Claire is in Law School at Ole Miss and is 22 years old. Matt is a senior at Petal High School playing football and baseball and will be going to PRC on a baseball scholarship.
