Teacher of the Year

Ms. Pike knew from a young age that she wanted to be a teacher.  In May 2012, she graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Valdosta State University and interviewed with Berrien that following July. She enjoys working with students of all abilities and watching every student grow and succeed.  She believes that every student should be given the chance to be successful in something, just like she was, and encourages all of her students to try hard and pursue something that they love and enjoy. After being the general education for six years, Ms. Pike is now expanding her career experience and is the SPED co-teacher in 5th grade. It was really wonderful for her to move from 4th to 5th grade with some of the same students. One of her favorite things to do during her free time is photography. She loves to watch Star Wars and visits Disney World often! Her students know she also loves giraffes and her pet cat, Swarley.
