Greetings ISB community, my name is Jennifer Berry and I am a proud Canadian who has completed a Bachelor of Arts in Geography, as well as, a Masters of Science in Education. I have been teaching for over ten years and I have enjoyed the challenges and adventures throughout the years. Along with my academic achievements I have discovered my passion for sports. I have had the opportunity to coach, as well as compete as a player in various sports. Teaching is more than just lectures and books, it is about getting involved and participating in different activities. When not at school, I can be found on the rugby pitch, in a canoe or exploring the wonders of the world!
