Mrs. Merdith Carrera

Hi! My name is Merdith Carrera, I am a Math Curriculum and Instruction Specialist for grades pre-k to 5th.

I received my Birth through 3rd grade teaching degree from Kendall College. I have been teaching for 15 years. I earned a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an ESL certification from Concordia University. I achieved my National Board Certification for Exceptional Needs Specialist in December 2022. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher and love using calming strategies with students. 

I spend a lot of time with my family biking, doing yoga, playing games, and traveling. I have daughters, Sophie age 12, and Ariel age 5. They keep me very busy. 

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