Hello, my name is Kathy Mercer. I am part of the fabulous K/1 team at Sunol Glen! I completed my B.A. at Cal State East Bay in Liberal Studies with an option in Special Education. I continued my education at Saint Maryís College, where I completed my teaching credential. Currently, I have partially completed the Masterís program in Curriculum and Instruction. I love children and the learning process!

        I started teaching in 1997 in the Livermore School District. I spent 10 years at Rancho Las Positas teaching Kindergarten and First grade. In 2007, I began teaching in Pleasanton at Walnut Grove Elementary School. Walnut Grove is my neighborhood school where my children are enrolled. Teaching in the multi-age Discovery program gave me experience in differentiated instruction. I came to Sunol Glen in 2009, when Sunol decided to create a multi-age program. We have such an amazing school, community and staff!

         Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my three children. We have fun bike riding, hiking and playing games. On weekends, we love taking adventures to local museums, parks and beaches.

         I look forward to getting to know all of you!
