Superintendent of Education

Ms. Teresa Vince Merwin is a 23 year veteran educator.  She is a graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi holding degrees in Business Technology Education and Instructional Technology Education.  She started her career at Hancock High School as a Technology Discovery teacher in 1996. She has since worked as a college instructor, district office director, and a principal. 

Her core belief as an educator is and has always been to make decision in the best interest of children.  She says she may not always make the popular decision.  She believes, though, as long as her decisions are in the best interest of children, all the other details fall into place.  She is committed to serving Hancock County School District with integrity and compassion.  She has a servant’s heart, and she will tirelessly work for children.

“Hancock County School District is a great district.  We are an A district with high-quality teachers, strong community and parent support, a fair and diligent board, and, most importantly, dedicated and creative students.  I am privileged and honored to serve this district and community.”
