Education fills most of Merrianne Dyer's life
Gainesville City Schools superintendent wore many hats during her teaching career
Gainesville City Schools Superintendent Merrianne Dyer has helped the system navigate tough economic times as well as add new facilities and programs during her tenure. Now, with more than four decades under her belt as an educator, the 61-year-old is ready to retire.
Merrianne Dyer sat down in the chair in her office recently and said she’d been teased about serving in almost every role within the Gainesville City School System. During her career, the 61-year-old Gainesville woman has been a student, parent, PTA and Gainesville Booster Club president, teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal and now superintendent. “I really have looked at it from a lot of perspectives,” Dyer said.
