Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ann Merrill

Welcome to my Class Page


About Me:

I am a proud graduate of Pearland High School, Class of 1987.  I am married and have two amazing children and four grandchildren. My philosophy of teaching is that every student deserves to have teachers who believe that they can achieve anything!  Students need to know they are respected and treasured for who they are, not just what they accomplish in the classroom.

This is my thirteenth year teaching public school, and my tenth year in Pearland ISD. I spent five years at PACE and was Pearland District Teacher of the Year in 2016. I was PHS Teacher of the Year for 2020 and am starting my fifth year at Pearland High School. 

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Maryland in Heidelberg, Germany, and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas in 2016.

My certifications include the following:

8-12  Social Studies/History

8-12 English Language Arts

K-12 Principal 

K-12  English Second Language

4th-8th Social Studies

4th-8th English Language Arts

K-6th Generalist

I look forward to working with your student. Please contact me if you have any questions.
