Ms. Jamie Berg is in her 23rd year at Clinton. She has taught Pre-K-8 Physical Education, but this year is teaching Pre-K-2nd. Ms. Berg was raised in Lincolnwood, Illinois. The street she grew up on is five minutes away from Clinton. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Northeastern Illinois University. Before coming to Clinton, she did a lot of subbing in the suburbs.
Ms. Berg’s hobbies include reading and learning as much about the computer as possible.
Ms. Berg’s love for children brought her into teaching. Her aunt was a Chicago kindergarten teacher for over 30 years. Each year on the last day of school she would take Ms. Berg to her class to help her prepare the classroom for the following year. She would observe her interacting with her students and thought that was what she wanted to do. Ms. Berg remembers going home on these days and telling her mom that she wanted to be a teacher.
Ms. Berg hopes students will gain the understanding that Physical Education is an important part of school from being in her class. She wants them to have fun, but also understand the importance of good sportsmanship and helping others.
