About Me




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 graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas with a degree in Aquatic Biology(Eat 'Em Up Cats)! She is continuining her education and working on her teaching certification.  Chase is a freshman at the Univeristy of Texas at Tyler and is a member of their track and field team.  Cullen is our youngest and she is an eighth grader at Hudson Middle School.  Cullen keeps us busy with cross country, track, soccer and piano.
