About DaraMerz

Dara Merz is an ELA teacher at Amesbury High School. She has been in this field for over 15 years. Her classroom has a high level of arts integration which she is desperately trying to maintain as she witnesses more and more of the arts disintegrate with the budget cuts.

She is proud that her two children are following in her footsteps. “It is wonderful to see them love to create as much as I do!”
