Hi Merryhill Mountain Lions! Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! I’m excited for the new year as we embark on Merryhill’s Explore More!
We’ll start our journey on expedition, as we travel the World together! Continent to country, historical facts and tales, connecting with interesting humanities, and discovering influences of thrilling artwork!
My name is Seneca Wood and I am the Art teacher at Merryhill! Our visual arts program gives our students an outlet for creativity and self-expression, as they learn about techniques, art history, and critical assessment of art.
When I am not laughing and learning with my students at school, I am at home enjoying the bustle of family. I’m married with 3 amazing kids who are now a Sophmore, Seventh Grader, and Second Grader – all who keep me re-energized and busy at home. My family and I spend our time with our fur babies, Schnoodle – Duke and Cat – Charile, while also playing sports, traveling, and pretty much doing anything outside. I have had the pleasure of moving around as a military family – enriching our understanding of many cultures while living in North Carolina, Colorado, Germany, and of course, California. While living in Colorado, I earned my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs.
I have a passion for teaching and motivating my students to be the best they can possibly be! I look forward to seeing you in the classroom as we embark on a challenging year, but a year we will get through like any other year as we continue to learn and have fun!
