Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Ms. Brittany and I teach 5th grade at King Elementary School.
I earned my degree in Elementary Education at San Francisco State University and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at Loyola Marymount University. I recently obtained my Master's Degree in Social Emotional Learning from National University. Essentially this means that I plan to furthure my understanding and explore the importance of our students' social and emotional well-being in the classroom. I believe that the children that reside in our classrooms are much more than just students. We have rooms full of athletes, musicians, artists, scientists, brothers, sisters, friends, you name it. My goal is to play a role in our children's lives that encourages the celebration of the whole child. I strive to create an environment in which children feel like every part of themselves is welcome to grow and flourish, not just the student.
Outside of the classroom, I love just that! Being outside! I spend much of my freetime hiking, running, and swimming. I also like to consider the beach my second home. I utilize my summers to travel, learn, and explore new places, whether that is a new spot here in the East Bay or a new spot on the other side of the world. I am also a lifelong musician. I started to play the piano at the age of four, and I became very passionate and inspired by the world that music had to offer. As I got older, I taught myself how to read music, and I eventually picked up the guitar, ukelele, violin, bass, and various percussion instruments. I have two animals at home: a cat, Octavia, and a dog, Raven. They are both adopted from Berkeley animal shelters!
I love the family and friends (students included!) that I have made here at King. Feel free to explore the page in search of current classwork or other school related resources. You are also welcome to email me with any questions that you might have!
