Double DUty Teachers

Welcome to our adventure! 

     Seeing double?! Not really! We're identical twins named Morgan Mercado and Taylor Wallace. We were born and raised in South Louisiana and it’s now where we raise our own baby girls- who are coincidentally four weeks apart. We graduated in elementary education from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette- go Ragin Cajuns! We also have a Master’s Degree in gifted education from Arkansas State University. 

        We started our teaching journey at separate schools, but then came together at the same school we attended as children. Fast forward a couple years, and we are now partner teaching together in 4th grade! We are currently teaching 4th grade gifted students. Mrs. Mercado teaches ELA and social studies while Mrs. Wallace teaches math and science. 

We’re passionate about teaching and learning, not only to our students, but new and veteran teachers as well. We are mentor teachers to university education majors and enjoy speaking at conferences and professional development opportunities when given the chance.
