Mrs. Metz

Hello! My name is Deanna Metz and I am excited about beginning my first year at Appling Middle School teaching Sixth Grade ELA. I am a graduate of Maryville College, a liberal arts school in East Tennessee, and have over nine years of teaching experience. My husband and I recently moved to the Memphis area and are so happy to be here. 


I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida and moved to Tennessee to attend school. I enjoy traveling, cooking for my loved ones, and reading. Jane Eyre, All the Light We Cannot See, and The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series are a few of my favorite books. 


I am passionate about education and will do all I can to ensure your child’s success. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. The best way to contact me is via my school email address:
