Hi! My name is Glenda Merrell and I love teaching third grade. Teaching is a "second" career for me. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Public Relations. After a number of stressful years working in media and marketing, I opted for a change. I spent several years as a stay-at-home mom raising our young children, and it was during that time that I realized how much I love helping kids learn. As such, I decided to pursue an alternative teaching certification and began my new career as an elementary school teacher.
My family and I live in Hudson on seven acres and enjoy sports, outdoor activities and family time. My husband, Danny, is the Operations Manager and an on-air personality for KICKS 105. We have three beautiful children who keep us beyond busy. Chandler is currently a SENIOR in college at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas (Eat 'Em Up Cats)! Chase is a SENIOR at Hudson High School and is active in basketball, track and band. Cullen is our youngest and she is a seventh grader at Hudson Middle School. Cullen keeps us busy with cross country, soccer and piano. My mother-in-law, Toni, also lives with us and works tirelessly to keep our household running smoothly.
