All About Me

Mrs. Merry with husband and DolphinAll About Me!

My name is Mrs. Merry Board and I am delighted to be part of PRIDE! I look forward to a wonderful, fun-filled year with all my fabulous students. I believe in "learning by doing!" My students are actively engaged using hands-on strategies to discover new learning in a safe, respectful environment.

I am native of San Diego, born and raised in El Cajon. I graduated from Valhalla high school and went straight to Grossmont Community College. I transferred to San Diego State and earned a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies with a emphasis in Literature. Teaching is my passion, so I went back to college to earn my Master's degree along with a teaching credential. I have been teaching 30 years in the Santee School District.

I am married to D.J. and we have a 24 year old daughter named Jessica, who is a student at Grossmont Community College. We live in Lakeside and enjoy having B-B-Q's with family and friends. In my free time, I enjoy reading a good book or taking a nap on the weekends!
