Mrs. Sarah Merryman
I graduated from Lee High School and earned a 2 year athletic scholarship for tennis. One of my favorite jobs I had, besides teaching, was working as a deckhand on a fishing boat. I love being on the water. Teaching was my passion from a young age and I am beyond grateful for the opportunities it has given me. I truly look forward to each school year and getting to know each new student. I am recently married to my amazing husband, and we have our dog Hogan that we love dearly.
Professional Experience: Before I became a teacher I was a substitute teacher in the Madison County School System. My first year teaching was at Buckhorn Middle School, but I am happy to have found my home here at New Hope School. At New Hope, I coach tennis and our Lego Robotics team.
Certifications/Awards: I was awarded the Teacher of the Year this year by my colleagues, and that is a huge honor. I am a Google Certified Educator.
