Get to know Mr. Merritt, our Fifth Grade Teacher

ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Andrew Merritt. This is my 12th year of teaching at Charles City Elementary School. I have taught 5th grade for all twelve of those years. Currently I am teaching math to 5th graders and language arts to my homeroom. I have also taught 5th grade science.  At the start of this school year, I look forward to teaching another great group of students, and reaching each student's maximum potential, is my goal.

I was born and raised in western Pennsylvania just outside of Pittsburgh. My close proximity to the city made me a huge Steelers fan. I graduated from McGuffey High School in 2000 and West Virginia Wesleyan College in 2004. Shortly after graduation, I moved to Virginia and started my teaching career in Charles City. During those years, I met and married, Cynthia Merritt, who is also a teacher at CCES for the 6th grade. We have 2 great kids Emily and Matthew.
