Ms. Jeannie Merritt
My name is Jeannie Merritt and I am one of the reading specialists at Lawrence High School. During the school day you can find me teaching Literacy Workshop and English 9. I am also one of the Team STEAM Robotics coaches and LHS' Slam Poetry coach. I’ve been at Lawrence High School since 2005 and have specifically worked in the reading program since 2007. I graduated from William Jewell College with an English degree in 1997 and obtained my Masters from Emporia State in 2008. I have a passion for developing students’ literacy skills. There is little I love more than seeing students’ pride when they recognize the improvement in their reading and writing.
