6th Grade Team
Hello students, families, and staff! My name is Ms. Carmen V. Mercado. I am new to Impact Prep Middle School! However, I attended Springfield Public Schools from K-12 and have been part of Springfield's Northend community for over 20 years.
I received Dual Bachelor's Degree in Elem Ed (1-6) with a Psychology concentration, from Westfield State University. Before coming here I work at Baystate Medical where I held a position as a Community Health Educator.
I chose to teach MATH because now there are so many new strategies. I personally excelled at it and just love working with numbers. Hope some of our students enjoy it as much as I do and for those who don't, that I can change their mind. Can't wait to meet them!!
I am so excited to be exploring science and engineering with you all this year in 6th grade. My goal is to challenge you to take risks, learn from and cheer on your classmates, and have fun!
Outside of school I spend my time watching sports, playing sports, and hiking. Soon I will be a certified personal trainer and am looking for students who want to get strong with me after school!
