Home of the Eagles - An A school

Principal Mrs. Merchant and Assistant Principal Mrs. Varnadore

Dear Inverness Primary School Families:

My name is Bridget Merchant and I’m extremely happy to return to IPS as your new Principal.

I served as Assistant Principal at IPS during the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years. I am a highly-dedicated leader committed to achieving success and I look forward to partnering with you to provide your child with the skills to be motivated lifelong learners.

As a parent of two, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school relationship. I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met. 

I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 16 years, all in Citrus County. I have been a classroom teacher, Teacher on Special Assignment, and an Assistant Principal. My academic background includes degrees in Educational Leadership and Elementary Education. In addition, I have an English for Speakers of Other Languages Endorsement, Reading Endorsement, Exceptional Student Education certification and School Principal certification. 

I will be working closely with our Assistant Principal, Mrs. Varnadore, to continue to provide an excellent educational experience for the students of IPS. Feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.
