Mrs. Merdith Carrera

Hi! My name is Merdith Carrera, I am a Special Education teacher at Beach Elementary School!

I received my Birth through 3rd grade teaching degree from Kendall College. I have been teaching for 10 years. I earned a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an ESL certification in 2017. I am currently working towards my National Board Certification as an Exceptional Needs Specialist. 

I spend a lot of time with my family bike riding, doing yoga, playing games, and traveling. I have daughters, Sophie age 8 and Ariel age 2. They keep me very busy. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by phone or email.
