Mercedes Herrera



My name is Mercedes Herrera and this is my fifth year teaching in the NorthWest School District.  I am currently teaching second grade and am very happy to be teaching in Noatak.  Originally from Bogota, Colombia, I came to the United States in 1983, where I married and raised a family in Miami, Florida. I have two loving and wonderful daughters, Veronica and Victoria, who reside in New York and Los Angeles. Some of my favorite things to do are walking, reading, and making new friends.

I feel very lucky for being in Noatak and getting to know its wonderful residents and amazing staff and students.
