Hello! My name is Amy Merryman, and I am so excited to begin my first year at Integrity Charter School. I was born and raised in San Diego and attended UCSD, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in human development as well as my teaching credential and Master’s of Education. Most recently, I taught 2nd-grade math and reading at Valley Elementary School in Poway Unified. I feel so lucky to be part of the incredible ICS community and to be teaching such an incredible grade - 1st! My goal as a teacher is to create a safe, supportive, inclusive learning environment where all students feel comfortable participating and taking risks. We will make mistakes, learn, and grow…together!
When I am not teaching, you can find me coaching youth volleyball or playing beach volleyball myself. I also enjoy writing, running, being in nature, cheering on the Padres, and spending time with my wonderful family and friends.
