Mrs. Mercy Stringer
Second Grade Teacher
Hi! I'm Mercy Stringer. I am excited to be teaching 2nd grade at Shepard. I've been teaching in a variety of capacities over the last few years, including here at Shepard. I know that this will be a wonderful year in 2nd grade!
A little about me! I have a wonderful family (see our silly photo?) with two daughters. One is here in 4th grade and the other is now at Wilson in 6th. I live in Plano and love the community. Fun fact! I was a geologist for 10 years before I decided to become an all-star teacher! Needless to say, we will rock this year! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make this year a great one.
