Amber Merrel is a Kindergarten teacher in a school outside of Tulsa, OK. Throughout her 10 years of teaching she has received numerous awards, but she continues to push herself to be the best leader she can be. She uses Go Be Great as a mantra in her classroom to encourage students to give 110 percent each and every day. “I want to be that teacher that (my students) never forget,” She says. To continue her growth as a leader and educator, Amber is in her second semester of graduate school to become a principal. She is also a wife and mother with two small children of her own!

Amber, you are living out the Go Be Great mission each day. We are happy to have you in the Go Be Great Army!
