While Mrs. Jennifer Berkley spent most of her younger years hating school and swearing teaching was the one job she would never do, she has found herself doing exactly that for the past 22 years.  Her first fourteen and a half years teaching were in Savannah, GA with most of that time being in Title I elementary schools.  After having her son, she and her husband decided to move to Greenville, SC to be closer to family.  She has spent those seven and a half years teaching middle school science and social studies in the Greenville County Alternative Program to students who have been removed from their assigned schools due to behavioral issues.  Mrs. Berkley holds a B.S. in Geology with a specialty in Engineering Geosciences and a M.S. in Education along with her Gifted and Talented and Read to Succeed endorsement.
