Mr. Jamie A. Berg

I am excited to be the Coordinator of Humanities for Jamestown Public Schools! I started my career in education as a middle and high school English Language Arts teacher in Frederick, Maryland before returning home to teach in Jamestown and Randolph. More recently, I served as a Curriculum Coordinator, Instructional Support Specialist, and Assistant Principal in neighboring school districts. I have been eagerly awaiting an opportunity to return to JPS and will work hard to ensure our Art, Music, and Social Studies programs experience continued success and provide our students with the best educational experiences possible!
