Ms. Taylor Merritt
Hello! My name is Taylor Merrit and I grew up right down the road in Wicksburg, Alabama. I graduated from Wicksburg High School in 2015. After high school, I moved to Troy, Alabama, and attended Troy University (Go Trojans!). It has always been my dream to be an elementary teacher, so I entered Troy University as an Elementary Education major. During my last semester of college, I had the joy of interning at Holly Hill. I fell in love with this school and the wonderful people here. I graduated from Troy University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in May of 2019.
I am so excited to begin my teaching career at Holly Hill Elementary School as a fourth grade teacher! I feel teachers should present the curriculum in a variety of ways to fit each child’s different learning style, but also make it enjoyable for the students to learn. I believe in creating a positive and safe learning environment, so every student can grow in all aspects of their lives in order to become a well-rounded individual. It is my goal to make a positive difference in the lives of children. I cannot wait to meet your child and watch them grow and learn this year!!
