Kari Merritt is an Early Childhood Education Instructor at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College's Ashland campus.

Her experiences working with children in the classroom and later with student teachers provided a strong base of knowledge of child development and developmentally appropriate practice intertwined with hands-on opportunities. It is Kari's goal that upon program completion graduates would be prepared to teach in or transform a program to provide a quality experience for children. 

In her free time, Kari enjoys spending time with her family and outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, canoeing. She also enjoys traveling and reading.

"I love teaching because I continually am learning from my students and the research that we all do, new and exciting information about child development and early childhood education." - Kari Merritt
