• Who is this person working with your child this year?  Great question!
     
    Professional Background - This is Mrs. Berkey's 27th year with LCPS, and her 11th year at Cool Spring. She began her career at Catoctin Elementary. Since that time, she has opened two new schools, served as an Assistant Principal, and served as a Principal. However, with a busy young family, she returned to the classroom in 2012. She has been at Cool Spring ever since! Mrs. Berkey has spent the last nine years serving as the Math Contact/Lead for Cool Spring and many years serving as the fifth grade Team Leader.

In addition, she earned a M.A. Ed. from Virginia Tech in Curriculum & Instruction. She also completed a M.A. Ed. in Administration & Supervision through George Mason University.
     
    Personal - Mrs. Berkey is a Virginia native, with family roots dating back to Jamestown. Her great (x11) grandparents are John Rolfe & Pocahontas! Mrs. Berkey and her husband have lived in Leesburg for over 23 years. He is former Secret Service and currently serves in the Fairfax County Police Department's Major Crimes Bureau, supervising the Sex Crimes Unit. Their three children are ages 21, 17, and 14.....so life is never dull around the Berkey house! In her "free time" (ha, ha!) Mrs. Berkey does volunteer work, spends time with her family, and enjoys her three silly dogs. Sometimes, she even cooks dinner! ;)
