Mrs. Deanne Mertz

Welcome to the home of the Spartans! 

My name is Deanne Mertz and I am going into my 15th year of teaching. While many of my years were spent in middle school, I have been with SSS for the past three years. This past year I took over the Yearbook/ Journalism class in hopes to revamp the program and promote the value of annual yearbooks. I currently teach English III and am also the sponsor for crochet club. 

I relocated to Wendell in 2012 from Fort Myers, Florida where I lived for 10 years. I was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pa. I grew up in the middle of Amish County and was a 1993 graduate of Conestoga Valley High School. I went on to attend West Chester University outside of Philadelphia where I graduated with a bachelor's in English. I was a news reporter for a few years until I stepped foot into the classroom- where I have found my home and continue to believe that our future leaders are sitting in my class.
