Mrs. Berkhammer has once again taken to the field to get the scoop on our newest teacher, Brynn Haas, who is in charge of our new Intermediate II/Life Skills classroom.
Mrs. Berkhammer: Brynn, first off welcome to JPII! Could you give us a little background on your teaching experience?
Ms. Haas: To start, I graduated from Wilson High School in 2011 and went on to graduate Lock Haven in 2015 with Pre-K-4th grade and Special Education Pre-K-4th grade certifications. I am currently in pursuit of my master’s degree at Lock Haven. As far as teaching experience goes, I previously taught 1st grade at a school in North Carolina and at a school in Chester County.
Mrs. B: Tell us about your family….
Ms. H: Patrick McCullough is my cousin and I attended all his shows and school functions, so I was very familiar with JPII before I took the teaching position. I love my family and we are very close. This summer, I went on a family vacation to New Jersey with my dad, stepmom, grandparents, and brother.
Mrs. B: Let’s talk favorites. Tell us your favorite thing about JPII….
Ms. H: Getting to know all my students in Intermediate II has been a lot of fun and I love Music Therapy with Miss Long.
Mrs. B: Do you have a favorite food?
Ms. H: French Fries, hold the ketchup.
Mrs. B: How about your favorite color?
Ms. H: Gray!
Mrs. B: Music?
Ms. H: Country, especially Brad Paisley.
Mrs. B: Do you have any hobbies?
Ms. H: I really enjoy cooking. My signature dish is meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
Mrs. B: That sounds delicious and we look forward to your dish at potluck (hint hint). Next question. Do you have any pets?
Ms. H: I do! I have a dog named Dingo and a chinchilla named Charlotte.
Mrs. B: Last but not least, we understand you have some exciting news….
Ms. H: Yes, I actually just purchased a house, which keeps me busy! A lot of my spare time has been spent cleaning and landscaping.
Mrs. B: That wraps up this edition of Getting to Know. Come back next month for a new report from the field!
