Other Information
When Mrs. Berry began her teaching career in 1983, she already knew how much she loved literature and writing. Working with students, she quickly discovered how much she loved teaching. Her students have motivated her to pursue advanced degrees in order to stay current with methods of engaging them. Her doctoral degree in Education involved a collaborative project between UC Berkeley students of architecture and elementary and high school students of English. Together the students designed virtual libraries and in the process envisioned future literacies. In her classes, seminar style instruction, critical and creative assignments, and service learning projects invite students to participate in a continual process of discovery.
