Mrs. Heather Berkey

Hello! 👋🏻

My name is Heather Berkey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Vanceboro Farm Life Elementary School. I fully understand the importance of my work and am committed to the students who walk into my classroom and to the families that are supporting them. 

I have two amazing children and a wonderful husband who has been my best friend for more than fifteen years. Building this family has given me my two favorite job titles of all; a wife and a mother! I have learned firsthand what values should be present in a classroom by being an advocate for my children. A classroom should have a positive atmosphere. I would only expect to send my children to school in environments that are conducive to their well-being. I also believe a classroom should have procedures and systems. Having procedures in place helps to shift through the many routines that take place in a classroom daily. My favorite motto is Every Moment Counts. I take this as a vow to be a role model at all times and also to understand the fragility of time with each other. I am passionate about inspiring children to become the best versions of themselves and fulfilling their dreams. 

I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6) with a concentration in Reading (K-12). I am a proud ECU alumni and thankful that I was able to go after my dream of becoming a teacher. I have a concentration in reading but I also have a great love for math! I always strive to find projects in the classroom because I love hands-on learning!
