4th, 5th & 6th
Jamie Berfield, came to Reno and High Desert Montessori School in 2007. Before joyfully taking on a teacher position in Ruby, a fourth, fifth, and sixth grade classroom, I taught in the middle school program. I received my bachelor of science in 1998 from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I also taught K-2 students in various public schools and a K-8 multi-age, project-based charter school. I have participated in many teacher trainings, and I completed my Master’s degree from Lesley University in 2005. This program allowed me to incorporate my hobbies, music and drama, into the daily curriculum. I followed that up with Montessori training in 2008. My additional non-teaching duties include serving on many school committees, and organizing afterschool clubs. My ultimate goal: impact education like Maria Montessori!
