Dana Griesbach received a Bachelor's Degree from University of Delaware in Early Childhood Development and Education, with a minor in Spanish. Her desire to meet the needs of every student inspired her to obtain a Master's Degree from William Paterson University in Special Education. Mrs. Griesbach has always enjoyed working with young students, helping them grow and learn to read. Due to her own love of reading, she completed the Orton Gillingham Teacher Certification program at Fairleigh Dickinson University, which is a structured multi-sensory phonetic approach to teaching reading.
Mrs. Griesbach has been teaching for 18 years and has taught pre-k, kindergarten and first grade as a general education teacher and a special education teacher. She is in her third year teaching kindergarten at Berkley School and is proud to be part of the Berkley family! She previously taught in Englewood and Mahwah. Her hope and dream for each school year is to make learning fun and meaningful for her students!
In her free time, you can find Mrs. Griesbach on the sidelines cheering on her two sons' sports games or taking her rescue pup for a walk with her husband.
