English I and III

Hello and welcome to one part of our awesome ELA corner!

I am Merrideth Fussell and I teach 9th and 11th grade English here at San Augustine. If you talk to me for a few minutes, you will probably guess that I am not a Piney Woods native. I was born and raised in Ohio. I moved to San Augustine when I met my husband, so I am proud to say that I chose to be Texan! This is my second year teaching and before I became a teacher, I worked for the newspaper (writing is my jam). My husband and I have two sons together and I also have a bonus son. I love to travel and I love to read. My favorite time of the year is winter and I am not so secretly hoping for snow!

I did not become a teacher because I think I am smart. I became a teacher because I need a career that challenges me every single day, repetitiveness is death.
