From Philadelphia Inquirer, “Who are Philly’s best teachers? Here are 60 who shine”:
Meg Merlini, McCall Elementary: Merlini, a fourth-grade teacher, believes her job is in service to each child’s emotional, social and intellectual growth; she honors each child’s individuality and listens to his or her voice. She is passionate about social justice, guiding a diverse group of children in exploring the world around them and facilitating a yearlong inquiry into a social issue of their choosing. She has served as a member of the building committee, mentored student teachers, coached a running club, and has taught an after-school yoga program.
Congratulations, Ms. Merlini!
