Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Mercedes Slack


I'm the art teacher at Highland Middle School. This is my 3rd year in the district and my 7th year of teaching. I previously taught 4 years of elementary art before coming to Highland. I received my bachelors degree at CSU from the art education program. My chosen medium is photography, but I also enjoy exploring other materials, like fibers/ embroidery and watercolors. When I'm not teaching, I'm creating memories with my family. I am married and have 2 children. We love to have movie nights and to play on the splash pad in our backyard. 


I am very excited about this next year and making memories in the art room!
