Mrs. Kim Berry

My testimony:
I came to know Jesus as my personal savior in 1978. It was through a family friend that I became aware of my need to ask Jesus into my heart. I have felt God's presence in my life ever since. God's hand has abundantly blessed and directed me in my endeavors. I continue to seek ways to grow and mature in the Word.

A bit about my background:
I am a graduate of NCS (1985) and wholeheartedly believe in private christian education. I attended USF where I pursued my Mass Communications degree as well as completed my B.S. in Elem. Ed. I married my high school sweetheart Chad in 1990.

My first teaching job was at First Baptist Christian School in Pinellas Park. I taught 3rd grade there for 3 1/2 years before our daughter Rebecca was born (94). As I stayed home to care for our daughters (Courtney was added to our bunch in 96) I became a feature writer and designer for several craft companies such as Rubber Stamper Magazine, Xyron, Provo Craft, etc. As the girls approached school age I felt called back to teaching. I taught my first year back to formal work at Tyrone Elem. After seeing public school in action for a year I came to Northside. I have loved every minute of it!  I am passionate about what I do.  I want try to teach and care for each and every child like I would want my own children to be cared for and taught. 

I have been teaching here for the last 19 years and love being part of this special family. How rich God's blessing has been to enable me share my life with all of you. I am excited to see what God's plans hold for the year ahead! Please feel free to reach me with my cell, 458-1548 if you need to talk with me.
