Meryl Creep

Skater name : Meryl Creep

 In real life: I am a Special Education teacher, teaching high school English to students with reading and language disabilities

 Sometimes I think: that I really suck at derby... I have really great days and really bad days

 Hometown: Springfield, MA.

 Likes: motorcycle rides, wine, drinking in general

 Dislikes: . being hungover;-) raining when I want to go on motorcycle rides

Why I love derby: I love derby because it gave me back something I was missing in my life. I am a mom, a teacher, a wife and I didn't feel I was me. I was always a jock! I was a gymnast for the majority of my youth. I played soccer, softball, and was a diver. I was a diving coach and a gymnastics coach. I missed being physical.

How I found derby: I watched the movie Whip It and then googled roller derby. I found a league in the area and went to their fresh meat night!
