1st Grade - Teacher
My name is Kyle-Leigh (pronounced like “Kylie”) Berry. I am a second grade teacher at Crystal River Elementary School. I enjoy working with children and helping them grow through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.
Carbondale, Colorado has been my home town for the past ten years. I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio where I attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio for my undergraduate in Elementary Education. My first three years of teaching took me to Crescent Springs, Kentucky where I also completed my Masters of Elementary Education at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Kentucky. I moved to the Denver suburbs thirteen years ago and decided that if I'm living in Colorado I needed to be in the mountains and I moved to Carbondale. Throughout my seventeen years of teaching, I've taught second, third and fourth grades. However, second grade is my favorite!
During the summer, I spend my free time doing CrossFit, hiking, camping and riding my bike. I also worked for Summer Advantage as the Program Manager for the last five summers. In the winter, I love to cook, snowshoe and read. In addition to the kids at school, I have three fur babies. They are three Jack Russell Terriers named Rory, Pax and Libby. You might see me out walking them or at the local dog park!
