Ms. Merkel


Hello! My name is Chelsey Merkel and I am thrilled to be teaching Grade 3 this year at RancheView School. My educational journey thus far includes a Bachelor of Arts Degree in General Social Sciences and Bachelor of Education Degree in Social Studies Education with a specialization in Early Childhood Education from the University of Lethbridge. After teaching abroad in China, I taught for 3 years at Sarah Thompson School in Langdon. I am beyond excited to be a part of the RancheView community and looking forward to another wonderful year of learning.

Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family and friends. Favourite pastimes of mine include photography, traveling, cooking and watching hockey. I believe that learning should be engaging and inspire creativity and critical thinking in children. Together as a class, we will work to create a positive learning environment full of inquiry, excitement and discovery!

I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns by writing a note in your child's agenda or by email at
