I am your instructional reading coach, Mrs. Gail Berry. As a native of Queens, New York, I began my educational background at Morris Brown College in Atlanta where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education. Upon receiving my degree, I taught in the Atlanta area before relocating to Houston, Texas. While teaching for the Houston Independent School System, I received my Masters in Elementary Education with a minor in English as a Second Language from Texas Southern University.
After eight years in the Houston area, I moved back to Atlanta, where I continued my career in Education at Hutchinson Elementary. During this time, I received my Leadership Certification from the University of West Georgia and I am presently pursuing my doctoral degree in administration and leadership from Clark Atlanta University.
My years at Hutchinson afforded me several opportunities as an educator to work in numerous capacities including leadership positions. As your instructional Reading coach, my goal is to ensure our students are afforded an opportunity to become literate individuals and competitive in today’s global society. Reading is the key to success for all. As your instructional reading coach, I welcome you to another great year of teaching and learning.
Welcome to a wonderful 2013-2014 school year,
