Mrs. Leslie Merritt, Ed.S.

Welcome!  I am Leslie Merritt, School Psychologist at Ebenezer Middle School.  This is my 19th year as a school psychologist in Effingham County, where I have spent my entire career in education.  I am an Effingham County native and graduated from ECHS in 1997. My husband, Justin, is a teacher at SEHS, and we have two children. Our son, Hunter, graduated from ECHS/STEM in 2021, and our daughter, Anna, is currently a sophomore at ECHS/STEM.  I love my job and the people I work with.  When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, traveling, and watching Hallmark movies :)
