Grade 2A

I would like to welcome you to the official Grade 2A website. My name is Mrs. Kelly Berardesco and I am so very pleased to have the opportunity to teach such wonderful children and to inspire them to do their very best in all aspects of life. Our classroom is a very magical place, where learning is fun. The students learn Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. They are taught to think independently and to reason when given a problem to solve. The children are always on task, and are taught to be respectful, kind, and caring.

And now a little bit about myself. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Education from Fairleigh Dickinson University, along with a Supervisor's certificate from Kean University. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught fifth grade, first grade, and presently, second grade. I have a deep love of teaching, but when I am away from the classroom, that love is directed to my husband and three great children, who keep me busy.
