Mrs. Merry Gordon


I am a teacher, a wife, a mother, an editor, an occasional writer, a lover of books and a bona fide geek.  I believe that what I do matters, and I believe that you matter, too. The 2019-2020 school year will begin my 21st year as an educator, and this year I'm a .8 faculty member at Mountain Ridge High School as well as an adjunct faculty member at Rio Salado College. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in Secondary Education-English and a theatre ed minor and then went on to earn my M.Ed. from Northern Arizona University in Secondary Ed. 

I teach Theatre 1-2 and English 101/102 at Ridge. I am also the Society of Female Scholars faculty co-sponsor. I hold my students (as well as myself) to a high standard of accountability and integrity and hope to create an open, dynamic and fun learning environment for everyone. I use a variety of instructional methods and I'm going tech rich by adding Remind, EdPuzzle,'s voice comments and PeerMark editing, as well as a handful of choice iPad apps, to my arsenal of useful stuff.  This year, expect laughs, mistakes, growth, success, new perspectives and little miracles. Welcome to my classroom!
