Biography

Welcome to 4th Grade!

My name is Tamara Merritt and this will be my 3rd year at Porter Elementary. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2002 with my Bachelor's Degree in elementary education, and graduated from Grand Canyon University in 2016 with my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. This will be my 15th year teaching at Mesa Public Schools, and my third year teaching 4th grade. 

In 4th grade, we will be switching classrooms for ELA and Math. I will be teaching Math, and Ms. Fields will be teaching ELA. I am very passionate about Math and look forward to reaching out to all of our 4th graders at Porter Elementary hopefully changing some negative mindsets about math. 

I am here at Porter because of the wonderful job we do with AVID! I believe that AVID is the best tool to use to get our students ready for junior high! With AVID's WICOR strategies, our students learn how to become organized, work well collaborating with each other, and be able to think critically at a higher level.

As our Kansas State University Chant says:Owl Holding Math Fact on Chalkboard
I believe that we won't stop!  

I believe that we won't stop!

I believe that we won't stop!

Achieving!

K-State....WILDCATS!!!!
