Degrees and Certifications:
Thank you for visiting the Arkow’s All~Stars portal page. I consider it a privilege to teach in this amazing community and look forward to building lasting relationships with each child that I teach as well as his or her family! I love getting to know everything about my kids, and I think it’s important you get to know me too.
This is my fourteenth year teaching second grade and I have been lucky to spend each of those years in New Albany. Prior to arriving in NA, I attended The Ohio State University and earned a Bachelors of Science in Human Development as well as a Masters in Education. I have served on many district committees and am beginning a new role as Second Grade Team Leader.
My family is originally from Sylvania, Ohio, but I have lived in Columbus since 1999. Both of my parents were teachers so I fell in love with teaching children at an early age. I was married to my wonderful husband in 2013 (you might know me by my maiden name Berkowitz) and in 2015, we welcomed our daughter Isabella (Izzy) into the world. Every day is exciting as I watch her learn, discover new things and grow. We love to frequent nearby parks and play outside. Izzy’s favorite thing to do is play with our dog Louie; he is an adorable King Charles Cavalier who hopes to visit our class sometime.
I look forward to getting to know you this year and can’t wait to help your child reach for the stars!!
