Welcome to Mrs. Grachan's
5th Grade Class!


About Me

This will be my second year at Otter River Elementary School, and I am looking forward to another great year! I graduated from James Madison University with my Master of Arts in Teaching. Go Dukes! I grew up in Bedford County and went to NLA, FMS, and JFHS. I love this area, and I am lucky I get to teach in such a beautiful place!

Some of you may know me as Miss Mercadante, but over the summer I married my best friend, Tyler Grachan. I have a Golden Retriever named Abby who I adore. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love the beach and being outdoors!

I am super excited to be your child's teacher this year. I look forward to working together to ensure that your child has a great school year!
