Welcome back

Welcome Back to all of our wonderful Berkman staff. I hope you had a magical holiday break with lots of food, family, laughter and rest. It is just good for the soul to have a break wouldn't you agree? Sometimes we can come back from a break with a renewed spirit sometimes we come back with a spirit that still needs awakening. I hope you all know that each and everyone of you are important and are amazing at what you do. WE DO HAVE ONE OF THE HARDEST JOB IN THE WORLD

What's Up my Peeps!

*Raquel Corona

-One day when I was in high school and was walking back from Mexico, I was singing, and a border patrol agent asked me to sing for his radio jingle for a local magazine he was starting up called Kings, Queens, and Scholars. He later gave me the song so I could practice, but when I went to the recording studio, there were like 15 other kids there, and the song was in a different key, and it sounded awful. I don't think I ever heard the song on the radio.

*Cheryl Baker

-I was born and raised in the Houston area (Katy). I graduated from Southwest Texas State in 1993 and started my teaching career. I am married with 2 boys and 3 dogs. I love to watch my oldest play baseball, I love doing fun crafts and DIY projects. I also love to decorate my home and shop for clothes...shocker! I would love to own my own boutique one day. Something else you might not know about me is that I have been taking tap dancing lessons once a week for the last 6 years. I love to dance
