Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My full name is Amanda Berrios. My students call me Mrs. Berrios or Mrs. B. This is my eleventh year teaching in total and my sixth year at Private Nicholas Minue School. I graduated from Carteret High School myself and went on to study childhood education at Manhattan College. During my sophomore year in college, I decided to enter their five-year master's program for special education. After completion of both degrees, I began working as a teacher in the Bronx, New York for five years.
I currently teach grades three through five. I work alongside the Rutgers Behavioral Program. There is one behavior specialist in my room at all times. In my classroom, I like to keep a steady routine that includes rigorous classwork alongside fun hands-on, engaging activities. I believe that parent - teacher communication is vital. After all, "it takes a village".
Lastly, I coach the varsity softball team as the assistant coach. If your child is interested in extra-curricular activities, please let me know. I will do my very best to assist your family as long as your child's grades meet the necessary requirements.
