Mrs. Trisha Merritt
I was born in Kirksville, Missouri but my parents moved us to Wylie, Texas a few years later. I went to Hartman Elementary way back when Mr. Wally Watkins was the Principal and it was a K-5th grade school. Back then there were only two elementaries, Hartman and Birmingham, one middle school (6th-8th grade) and one high school (9th-12th grade). It's funny that I am teaching in the same school that I attended many years ago. I'm pretty sure my current classroom is my old math classroom. I graduated from UT Dallas with a degree in Child Learning and Development. I started teaching 6th grade in 2013 at a middle school in Frisco, TX. I have been at Harrison Intermediate School since 2017. I love being able to teach in Wylie! I married my high school sweetheart and we have two children, Liam and Abigail, who currently go to school at Watkins Elementary.
