Meet the Teacher

Welcome to Mrs. Berzinski's Class!
We are the busy bees!The Busy Bees

 I consider it an honor and privilege to teach at Black Mountain Primary School. I have worked at BMP since 1997. I earned my BA in Elementary Education from Mars Hill College and I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I began teaching second grade in August 2005.
I am married and the mother of three beautiful children: Daniel, married and a graduate of Virginia Tech; Christopher, a graduate of Appalachian State; and Rachel, a graduate of NC State. All three children began school at BMP and graduated from Owen High. We love enjoying the outdoors with our dogs: Maddie, a German Shepherd, and Spencer, a black lab. I enjoy gardening, hiking, cooking and reading. While I have held a variety of jobs since the age of 16 (waitress, McDonald's manager, retail store department manager, USPS mail carrier), teaching second grade is my dream job and I absolutely love it!
I am so excited to be part of an A+ school where integrating the arts into your child's education enhances and increases learning...not to mention making that learning FUN!!  I encourage you to visit our classroom. Please communicate with me any concerns, issues, or questions you may have about anything so that I can provide the best possible education for your child. You can call the school, email me through this site, or send me a note in your child's homework folder. I look forward to working with you and your child this year! We are going to have a fantastic 2015-16 school year!
