Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Stephanie Merklin
My name is Stephanie Merklin. This is my third year teaching at Farragut Elementary School. I grew up in a small town in southern Missouri called Ste. Genevieve and graduated High School from there. I continued my education at Mineral Area College, and recieved my Bachelor's degree from University of Missouri St. Louis (UMSL). I am currently working toward obtaining m Reading Specialist Certificate through UMSL.
I live in Hillsboro, Missouri with my husband Joe, my 2 kids, 3 dogs, and 5 chickens. In my free time, I enjoy reading a book outside on my hammock while listening to the birds sing. I also enjoy watching my children participate in the school activites.
I believe in second chances, and my classroom door is always open to students that need just that.
