Parent Learning Option Intent Form

The School District of the City of York is working very hard to plan a safe return for our students and staff in the fall. As we shared with our school board recently, school will likely look different this year. We understand that every family is in a unique situation, health, and comfort level that we need to be ready to support. As a result, families will have two learning options for returning to school in Fall 2020 under the Green Phase. 1) In-person learning 2) K-12 Bearcat Cyber Academy. Please submit one form for each of your children enrolled at the School District of the City of York. This form will close on August 6, 2020 https://forms.gle/qzqL8Vk54xupmtDP9

She came to the School District of the City of York from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where she served as an elementary school teacher, assistant principal, principal, and district level supervisor. She has an extensive background in equity and diversity as well as English Learners programs.

Dr. Berry believes academic achievement is a direct correlation to educator expectations. If students are taught how to “think about their thinking” (metacognition), then they can rise to any and every challenge presented to them. She is rooted in the premise that children can and will learn when given the opportunity to soar and demonstrate excellence. Furthermore, she is committed to setting up learning environments that allow for equitable practices for diverse learners.

She is active in the community and has membership in a variety of organizations. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and continues to serve on the Citizens Advisory Board. She has taught a variety of college level courses at several universities and will join the faculty at Wilson College in the spring of 2018.

Dr. Berry’s philosophies are grounded in the research conducted by Wiggins and McTighe (2005) that denotes instructional initiatives should “Begin With The End In Mind.” She also has strong beliefs in establishing a culture and community of leaders with a “Growth Mindset” as presented by Dweck (2008). Her hope is to help the York learning community provide its students with a premier education.
