    Picture Day

    GV Teacher/Staffer Spotlight

    Meet the great people that help make our school the wonderful place it is -- even from a distance!  

    First Grade Teacher, Mrs. Merrifield!

    Mrs. MerrifieldMeet Mrs. Merrifield! She has been a teacher for over 25 years, teaching all ages from toddlers to 5th graders, but she is particularly fond of teaching first grade and having the privilege of helping them learn to READ! Mrs. Merrifield just joined Green Valley two months ago, coming over from nearby Vista Grande and her favorite thing about teaching is getting to know each child, finding what makes that child unique and special.  She really cherishes that moment she can see the spark of learning ignite in the child's eyes and mind.  

    Mrs. Merrifield hasn't been at GV long enough to make a bank of GV memories, but she will absolutely never forget teaching the day the sky was orange all day long.  This pandemic is about the craziest thing that has ever happened to her as a teacher. However, she loves singing with the children and she has done that more during this remote learning time, in order to keep the kids engaged and to build classroom community.  Mrs. Merrifield is learning something new about technology every day and it will forever change the way she teaches, but she also cannot wait to get back to the classroom.  There are many things she looks forward to doing once we all get back on campus but at the top of her list is giving hugs to the children and reading books with all of them -- real books!

    Mrs. Merrifield loves to be in the mountains, either skiing on the slopes or hanging out at the lake and she would really like to meet Brene Brown, as she finds her so amazing!  One thing that Mrs. Merrifield counts as a positive about remote learning is that it gives her the flexibility to be at home with her family when she is teaching, as she splits her time between work and home.

    Mrs. Merrifield wants the kids at GV to know this: "You are amazing, you are special and you are loved!"  To the parents, she would like to say: "A quote I shared during Back to School Night was, 'Together, we can move mountains.'  This work is hard, for all of us, and can only be done if we take care of each other and work together with compassion and mercy.  Teachers are doing extraordinary things to make learning happen for children and I know many of you are doing extraordinary things at home to make sure your child has what they need to learn.  We are in this together.  Thank you for your support, flexibility and patience."
