Melissa Berry

I have been in education since 2015. I started as a Paraeducator in Preschool before becoming a teacher in 2021 through National University’s teaching program. I have taught TK through 2nd grade. I enjoy working at Johnson Elementary School because of the team atmosphere of the staff.

I decided to become a teacher after working for several years at Johnson’s Preschool and seeing the fantastic work of the teachers. I enjoyed seeing the students' progress and what a difference the teachers made in the young students' lives.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends whenever possible. I also enjoy drinking coffee. My hope is to help my students be able to make amazing friendship this year that will last their entire time at Johnson. My hope is that my teaching will set the students up to have a successful and enjoyable future.
