Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Ann Merrill
Welcome to my Class Page
I am a proud graduate of Pearland High School, Class of ’87! I am married and have two amazing children and four grandchildren. This is my twelfth year teaching public school after having taught private school for seven years. My philosophy of teaching is that every student deserves to have teachers who believe that every student CAN achieve anything! Kids need to know they are respected and cared for.
This is my eighth year in Pearland ISD. I taught three years at PACE and was the 2015-1016 District Teacher of the Year. I spend two years as Assistant Principal at PACE, but really missed being in the classroom teaching. I’m excited to be at Pearland High School to teach U.S. History. I was PHS Teacher of the Year for 2020.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Maryland in Heidelberg, Germany. I graduated with a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas in 2016.
My certifications include the following:
8-12th Social Studies/History
8-12th English Language Arts
4th-8th Social Studies
4th-8th English Language Arts
I look forward to working with your student! Please contact me if you have any questions.
