Dear Explorer,

My name is Melissa Merrifield and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to second grade. I am a native of New Mexico and lived in Silver City until I graduated from Western New Mexico University in 1992.  While teaching, I earned a Master's in Education through NAU.  I have been teaching in Mesa since 1993 with the majority of my career at Entz.  My husband, Scott, and I have two children, Hallie and Marshall. Hallie is going to be Mrs. Merrifield's Family a senior at GCU this year and Marshall will be in seventh grade. We have three silly dogs, two crazy cats, and a bearded dragon. Our daughter, Hallie, also brought home a sweet Siberian HuskyMrs. Merrifield's pets last fall.   Some of the things I enjoy doing are camping, going to the beach, riding bikes, and traveling. I'm definitely looking forward to being in a real classroom. I miss seeing students!

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 4th.  As you know we will be Remote Learning at this time. It is my sincere hope to see you soon!  Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or concerns about your child.  Email is the most effective communication tool I would like to encourage you to use to contact me.  My email address is
