Merry Scholl taught Pre-K for four years in Riverdale and Park Slope. She received her B.A. from Oberlin College, and is wrapping up a Master's in Early Childhood Education at Bank Street College this year. One of her favorite parts of preschool classroom life is block play; her favorite picture book right now is Yo! Yes? by Chris Raschka. Born and raised in Riverdale, Merry has some great nature trail recommendations if you are planning a birdwatching excursion in the Bronx. She is also an urban farmer — she would love to talk with you about tomatoes.
