Berkley Fain- Academic Content Specialist
Hi! My name is Berkley Fain, and I am so very excited to be working as an instructional coach this year. Teaching is my passion, and I can't wait to support the amazing teachers and students at VCES. Prior to teaching, I attended the University of Virginia. Since that time, I earned a masters degree and a specialist degree from Piedmont College. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Lee, for thirteen years, and we have one son, Drew, who will be in sixth grade this year. Outside of school, I love spending time and making memories with family and friends. Attending Drew's sporting events, traveling, and shopping are just some of the hobbies I enjoy. I am thrilled for the upcoming school year. 180249 email@example.com
