Peggy Merrell is a Project ReCharge teacher at Dayton High School. She teaches all grade levels of biology and environmental science. Peggy’s favorite part of teaching is when students “get it” and everything falls into place. If Peggy won the lottery, she would travel the world.

Peggy promotes sustainability by using reusable grocery bags she keeps in her car, and she recycles her water bottles for use in school labs. She is learning more about sustainability through online courses and has attended several environmental conferences. She plans to conduct trash audits with her classes in the future.
