My name is Elizabeth Berry but I prefer to be called by my childhood name, Betsy. I graduated from Cornerstone University in 2002 with a degree in Secondary Education specializing in a Language Arts major and Physical Education minor. I taught middle school previously in a Grand Rapids charter school before joining the Godwin Heights Middle School team in 2016. I'm passionate about students being successful writers by learning the writing process and reading books that challenge them to think critically. I am married with 4 children ranging from age 22 to age 7. We love to play card games together and play basketball.
