Hello And Welcome to my web page!!!! I am Mrs. Berkfield and I am an 8th grade math teacher here at West Muskingum Middle School. 2017-2018 starts my 15th year of teaching and all of those years are here at West!!! I am a graduate from Bishop Rosecrans High School and Ohio University-Zanesville. I have also earned my Masters degree through MaryGrove College.
I am an Ohio State Buckeye fan and have recently enjoyed following the Columbus Blue Jackets. I love to watch and play most sports. I spend my spare time outside, traveling, being creative, getting together with family and friends and walking my dogs Quincy and Layla. I get to embark on a new journey this fall, as I am expecting my first child in October.
West Muskingum Middle School is a great place to work and learn. It is surrounded by a caring staff, administration, teachers and community.The best part of West is definitely the students. I have worked with so many great students and family's in this community. I look forward to meeting and working with my new group of students and family's this year.
I have high educational and character expectations of my students. Character traits like kindness, tolerance, respect, responsibility, honesty and perserverance are just as important in my class as the math content that I teach. We will work daily at accomplishing all of them. Go Tornadoes!!!!!!!
