Mrs. Mary Lee Merritt-Boyd
Dear Coalmont Students and Families,
I am honored to lead a school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to serve the students and families.
I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-six years. Prior to becoming the principal here, I worked with students from Pre-K through 8th grade in a variety of roles. I have been a gifted education and regular education teacher, an English language development instructor, an English expression teacher, as well as a Pre-K-6 elementary principal. I am thrilled to utilize my skills as an educational leader at Coalmont Elementary School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.
On a personal note, my husband and I have lived in the Upper Cumberland area in Tennessee for the past 8 years. My husband and I have children living in Alaska, Mississippi, and various cities in Tennessee. I love the Grundy County area and all this community offers. I am proud to be part of the Grundy County School District, one that values high standards by providing rich learning experiences for all students.
I view education as a life-long process and continue to learn from our students, teachers, and parents at Coalmont. Most importantly, I believe that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to meeting you soon!
