    Apple Teacher

    I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2001. In December 2006, I completed my Master's degree at Villanova University.

    I live with my husband, 2 daughters (Sloane - 5 and Elin - 4) and my dog Ernie.  I have enjoyed the extra time that I have had with my girls over the past couple of months.  We have had many picnic lunches, rode bikes and scooters, and did lots of swimming. 
    This will be my 18th year teaching at Upper Merion Middle School. I started at Upper Merion teaching 8th grade.  During my time here, I have also taught 7th grade for 4 years. This year I will be teaching Algebra IA, Algebra I.  Before coming to Upper Merion, I taught in a suburban school outside of Annapolis, Maryland. 

    I absolutely love math and am excited about all of the topics that I teach.  Last year was very challenging for everyone and I know it may take some time to get used to having everyone back in person.  I'm looking forward to a great year and getting to see everyone's faces this year.   I am always looking for new and exciting ways to share my love of math with each of you and hope you all have as much fun with math as I do.

    I want all students to have success, I encourage everyone to ask questions if you need extra assistance and share your accomplishments and proud moments with me as well.  I am here for you!  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at jberton@umasd.org, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
    I am anxiously awaiting another great year at Upper Merion Middle School.
