Welcome To Room 204

Supply lists currently unavailable
Hi!  I'm Ms. Bers
I am thrilled that you will be in my Literacy and Social Studies class this year!  This is my 15th year teaching at James Ward Elementary School.  Fourth grade is going to be amazing since we get to improve our reading skills through engaging and diverse texts in addition to learning about the regions of the United States in Social Studies.
I am very passionate about teaching and creating a safe space for all learners to grow.  We will be spending a lot of time together so it is important that we treat each other with respect, kindness, and compassion at all times.  I am a firm believer that as your teacher, I am help you grow as a learner, and as a person of good character.  
Want to know a little bit about me?  When I am not grading papers or planning lessons, you can find me at the gym lifting weights or playing with my white Pomeranian dog BB.  I also enjoy cozying up on the couch with a great book.  I am also fluent in American Sign Language, which I will be incorporating into my classroom often.  I can't wait to learn more about each and every one of you!
