Just a little bit about me:
My name is Jamie Berry and I am originally from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Together, my husband Mike and I have a 5 year old daughter named Kinzley, and a very spoiled Cavachon dog (King Charles Cavalier/Bichon) named Sadie.
I attended college at West Chester University and graduated with an elementary teaching certificate and a minor in Spanish. In June 2009, I completed my Masters degree in Educational Development and Strategies from Wilkes University. I have been with West Shore School District for 13 years now and have always taught 3rd grade at Washington Heights. Over the summer and throughout the school year, I take classes and workshops to "refresh" my teaching skills.I just completed my Master's +30 in the summer, which was a great accomplishment! What will be next?
I love to shop, be silly with Kinzley, decorate, and enjoy quiet time to journal, have good conversation, or even just relax. My favorite colors are mango and purple, and my favorite animals are dolphins, seahorses, and sea turtles (anything UNDER the SEA)!
If I had to choose my favorite subjects to teach, I mostly enjoy teaching math and science. I'm passionate about teaching and learning skills that are valuable in life. Many 3rd grade skills and discussions (academic and social) introduce and encourage problem solving. Best of all, I love looking for new activities and hands on projects to keep our class involved and interested in the world of math and science.
