My name is Chris Merrigan and I am very excited to be teaching 8th Global Studies at K-M Middle School this year. This will be my first year in the district and my tenth year as a teacher. I have previously taught in Willmar, Albert Lea, Medford, and Rochester. 

I grew up on a small farm in Vermillion, SD. I attended the University of Minnesota, Morris, where I majored in social sciences and secondary education. In 2018, I completed my Master's Degree from St. Catherine University, where I majored in Curriculum and Instruction. 

My wife and I have been married since 2015 and we welcomed our son in May 2018. I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors, while also spending time with friends and family. 

I look forward to a wonderful school year. Thank you.
