Mrs. Jennifer Merroth-Maley

Hello and thank you for visiting my "About Teacher" page.  I am known as "Miss Jenn" to my students, parents, and collegues.  I recently got married in the Fall of 2019, so I am slowly changing over my last name to Merroth-Maley.  My husband's name is Tom and I speak of him often as he is a big supporter of my classroom program, students, and school community!

I am privileged to teach the K-5 Life Skills classroom at Pickering Valley Elementary School.  I have been a special education teacher within Downingtown Area School District since July of 2005!  I enjoy being an active member within my school community as well as my local community.  My husband and I live in the Downingtown Borough and I am roud to be able to live and work in this terrific community.  I am very involved with both the PA and the Chester County Special Olympics and I am also a head coach for The Believers, an all abilities community sports team that supports inclusion.  We currently offer athletes of all abilities opportunties to play flag football and basketball.  We also plan many community based events for the athletes.

I enjoy being with my students and I am happiest when I am with my "kiddos".  I love being a teacher and especially love the friendships that I have made and continue to make in my journey as an educator.  I value my position as a special education teacher and I work hard everyday to improve my craft and to assist my students to be the best version of themselves that they can be. 

I enjoy being outside, going out to eat, hiking with my friends, riding my bike, spending time with my family, and I love sitting down to enjoy a good book!

Thank you for visiting and Welcome!
