Hi! My name is Darci Merritt. I’ve been teaching at Grandview since the Fall of 2007. I'm so excited just thinking about all the cool things that are to come this year! So let me tell you a little about myself and my family.
My husband's name is Ben. He is a retired firefighter and enjoys spending a lot of his time fishing at Lake Fork, TX. We have two daughters, Kayleigh and Loralei. Both of my girls have grown up at Grandview since they were little. Kayleigh will be a junior at Waurika high School, and Loralei will be in 6th grade here at Grandview. We live in Waurika, and attend church there, too.
In my "spare" time, I like to spend time with my family! I also like to take pictures, scrapbook, catch up on reading some favorite books, watch a few episodes of some favorite TV shows or watch a good movie, and sometimes, just catching a quick nap!
A few of my favorites.....let's see... I can't say that I really have a favorite color because it changes, but I'd have to say blue most of the time. I LOVE milk chocolate (my favorites are Lindor and Ghirardelli, along with York Peppermint Patties, Rolos, and Hershey bars). I love "smell goods" (that's what my girls used to call things like perfume, lotions, and hand sanitizers). I also like pretty much any type of gift card (Amazon, Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT), Dollar General, and Wal-Mart)! I feel like the Gift Card Queen at Christmas because I give out so many gift cards...because sometimes it is just better to buy what you want than to get a gift you're not really crazy about! Ha ha! I like all kinds of music, ...but you never know what I might be streaming! My favorite band of all-time has to be Aerosmith (you can Google them if you don’t know...). Some of my favorite movies are The Color Purple, The Great Gatsby (original, not new), The Breakfast Club, To Sir With Love, the Twilight Saga (yes, I was a Twi-hard and my oldest read the whole series in less than two weeks back during the quarantine!), and too many more to list! I don't really watch sports so I don't necessarily have a favorite team of any kind (except Chicago Bears and Fighting Illini - I'm from Illinois, go orange and blue)! My favorite animals are the chinchilla, an ocelot, and the okapi. I would LOVE to have a chinchilla someday. I think they are just the coolest little creatures!
Well, there's some interesting information about me. I hope to learn more about your child and your family as the school year moves on!
