Please join us in welcoming Miss Kalin Merkley to the high school as a teacher in Physical Education. Miss Merkley earned her B.S. in Physical Education from SUNY Cortland as well as her Master’s degree in Physical Education Leadership. While in college she played on the women’s golf team.
Miss Merkley is from Sarasota, Florida and graduated from Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School. While in high school she participated in 4 years of varsity soccer and golf.
When asked who influenced her decision to pursue a career in education, she responded, “My high school PE teachers. I remember looking forward to going to PE and loving every minute of it. I thought being a PE teacher would be the coolest job because I would be able to teach kids how to be active and why being active is so important.
