Mrs. Marisha Merchant

This is my ninth year teaching, but my third in Onslow County Schools.  I joined the Onslow K-12 Virtual School team after teaching two years at Southwest Middle.  I previously taught in Craven County Schools.  I am actually a graduate of Onslow County Schools (White Oak High School class of 2008), and I'm excited about being back home to start my own family.  I married the love of my life, Jonathan, Memorial Day of 2019, and shortly after we welcomed into the world our precious baby girl, Aniyah.

I was a participant in the North Carolina Teaching Fellows program at North Carolina Central University in Durham, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English Education (with a minor in Writing) and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2012.
