All About Ms. Urbanek
When I was just in the second grade, I had a dream to become a teacher. Through hard work, dedication, and being supported by my own teachers, I achieved my dream. I have been teaching in the town for 14 years. Working in Berkley has been such a rewarding experience and I look forward to many more years here. The families and staff of BCS and BMS are outstanding! Thanks for being you!
My Sports Mania after-school program has been up and running since I began my teaching career here. I do Sports Mania for grades 3 & 4 at BCS and grades 5-8 at BMS. It is a great way to enjoy sports in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Be on the lookout for the sign-ups soon!
When I'm not at work I can usually be found on the beach or spending time with my family and friends, especially my godchildren, Benjamin (13) and Lucas (10). They are my little bundles of joy. Also, I enjoy riding my motorcycle, listening to music, exercising, swimming,reading a good book, and CLEANING! In case you didn't know - I am a huge Red Sox fan! I have one big brother named Nick.
However, my favorite thing to do is touch the young minds in my classroom.
All About Ms. Rockcliffe
Welcome to Berkley Middle School and TEAM 5R/5U. My name is Ms. Rockcliffe and I will be teaching ELA and Social Studies this academic year. I have been teaching over 30 years and continue to find each year a unique and rewarding experience. I look forward to teaching each of you and providing a positive learning environment which will enhance you as a student as well as a person.
My family life is a significant component of who I am. I have three children who keep me extremely busy outside of school. I enjoy watching my children play football, soccer, and field hockey. I am an avid New England Patriots and Boston Bruins fan. In my free time, I enjoy exploring nature whether it is bike riding, walking, hiking, or just enjoying the beach. I enjoy cooking and especially take pleasure in baking around the holidays. You can also see me from time to time singing and listening to country music.
I am excited about this year and I am looking forward to meeting you all very soon.
