Welcome!  I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Education.  I also received a Masters of Curriculum and Instruction degree from UTK.  I have taught many grades including 4th grade in Knox County, 2nd grade in Elizabethton City, 3rd grade at Cedar Grove and Wilson Elementary in Rutherford County.  I also worked as a supervisor of student teachers at Milligan College in Elizabethton, TN.  I began teaching at McFadden in 2013.  The student's passion to learn and enthusiasm from the staff at McFadden makes everyday a great day to teach. 

I am married to Kenny Merryman and we have 2 children. Todd is a freshman at the University of Tennessee.  Molly Kate is a freshman at Siegel High School.  I enjoy time with my family, miniature schnauzers and chickens.  We are Vol fans and love UT sports.  I love to garden, run and read.  I'm blessed to be a part of the McFadden Family.
