Mr. Jeffrey Berry
In all honesty, I've been very fortunate to be a teacher here at LES now for 18
"wonder-filled" years!!! Collectivily, I'm actually begining my 21st year as an
elementary school educator!!! Seems hard to believe but in all those years, I continue to
approach each and everyday here at LES, with as much enthusiazm and
energy I can muster, to help provide the very best educatioal environment
for all of the students of LES, and not just ones I'm entrusted too each year.
Today's students face a rigorous and challenging curriculum and "yes", even in Kindergarten.
The mirade of challenges and expectations they will encounter as they each begin
their own educational journeys in Kindergarten is often a wonderful and equally dynamic
place to be everyday. I can say with great confidence, something wonderful, more often than not, happens in that classroom everday!!! I get the great privilage of often seeing it 1st hand.
It is a tremendous joy and honor to be teacher at LES!!!
I'm so excited for the coming school year !!!
As I mentioned, I am beginning my 18th year of Kindergarten here in
Lawrenceville. I also taught Kindergarten in Highland Park, NJ for two years and I
astarted my trip "back to the classroom" teaching third grade in Hopewell, NJ.
When I say I love teaching young people, I truly mean it !!! Short of being a
husband to my wife Jennifer (20 years this December), who is a successful
local real estate agent and a great Mom to our three beautiful daughters
Taylor/25, and Grace/17, and Ella/15, being a Kindergarten teacher here at
LES has been one of my greatest joys in my 18 years as an ambassador of this
this very special little school.
We live in Yardley, Pa and have two cats named Gus and Henley as well as
two dogs named Finnigan and Henry. Yes, its a bit of a zoo at our house
sometimes but I would not change a thing if given the choice. I’m also a very
big NY Giants fan! Let's hope the 2018 season is better than 2017.
Mrs. Collins is also a huge part of our class and she is wonderful!!! She loves
kids and has been my Teaching
Assistant for about four years now.
We also have a student teacher this year from Rider College this Fall named Mr. White.
Its going to be an extrodinary school year!!!
