Mrs. Mercado

Hello students and parents!

Welcome to my page. My name is Heather Mercado, and I am a 1st grade ESL teacher at Jackson-Keller Elementary. I was born and raised right here in San Antonio, and attended NEISD schools throughout my education. The 2020-2021 school year will be my third year teaching. I previously taught fourth grade, and am now going into my second year teaching first grade. 

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Go Runners! I am certified in early childhood-6th grade education, and also hold a English as a Second Language certification. In my spare time I enjoy doing fun outdoor activities with my family, and reading a good book. 

 I look forward to an exciting year full of learning with your child!
