Mrs. Shawn Berg

I am looking forward to another great year as a Wildcat! This will be my third year at Mary McPherson (previously I taught kindergarten) and my first year in first grade.

I grew up in Meridian, and I attended Mary McPherson for 4th and 5th grade - I really am a Wildcat for life! I love to spend time with my husband and two-year-old daughter hiking, cooking, watching sports - most often you'll find me cheering for the Mariners or BSU Broncos. I believe family is one of the most important things in the world, so I consider it an honor that you are letting me be a part of your child's social-emotional growth and academic learning.

Email will be your best resource for information - I send home a weekly update with announcements, upcoming events, and our current academic goals.

Some notes on school supplies:

*Backpack - make sure it is standard sized, big enough for your supplies and your school-issued device (iPad or laptop).
*For earbuds vs. headphones - I recommend headphones, I've found for little ears they are more comfortable, tangle less often, last longer, and are less likely to get lost.
