Mrs. Tamara Merritt
My name is Tamara Merritt and I am the Dean of Students at Keller and Roosevelt elementary. This is my 17th working in Mesa Public Schools, and my second year as a Dean of Students. I'm so grateful to be a part of two amazing schools and communities!
My educational background began when I earned my Bachelor's Degree at Northern Arizona University in 2002. After 10 years of teaching at both elementary and junior high in Mesa, I went back to school and earned my Master's Degree at Grand Canyon University in 2015 in Educational Leadership. My career goal is to one day be an elementary principal.
Family is very important to me. I have two incredible children, Aiden 14, and Addie 11. My husband is in education as well, as a high school teacher and wrestling coach. Our favorite thing to do is to travel to beaches and the mountains in our Pop-Up Trailer. On our journeys we enjoy listening to our favorite books on audible, especially the Harry Potter series.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. I try to return phone calls and e-mails within 24 hours during the school week. Looking forward to a wonderful 2019-20 school year in MPS! #ONETEAM
