Mrs. Berry-Kelley

Welcome to the PRIDE!

Room 41 is home of the Lion PRIDE! This year we will prepare for 5th Grade by reading critically, writing effectively, solving problems with precision, and collaborating with our classmates. 

 Defining Moment in My Education

I had a few amazing teachers growing up. But it was my 3rd grade teacher, Mr. Schiffler who inspired me to become an educator. Mr. Schiffler encouraged me to always be my best and he made learning fun by incorporating humor, music and hands-on learning activities. He took the time to get to know me and made me feel important by using my interests and talents to motivate me. When I look back on my education, most of my memories take place in Mr. Schiffler's 3rd grade classroom. He has been the teacher I strive to be like.

Core Educational Belief

I believe all students learn when they feel a personal connection to what they are learning. I strive to foster a classroom environment where students feel confident to take risks, learn from their mistakes, and develop a life-long love for learning.
