Hello, my name is Jennifer Berger and I have been a second grade teacher at the STEM Academy since 2014. This is my twelfth year teaching, and my fourth year in the second grade. I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grade in previous years as well English as a Second language for grades 5-8. My first teaching job was actually as a seventh and eighth grade French teacher! When I’m not teaching, I like to spend time with my husband Alex and our two children; Charlotte who is two and Zachary who will be one this winter. We like to spend time outside at the park or at the beach with our dog, Lemon. When I’m not with my family, I enjoy cooking and reading.

Rachel Brophy

My name is Rachel Brophy and I am currently a 2nd grade teacher at the STEM Academy. I have been a teacher in Lowell for 10 years and have taught 1st and 4th grade as well. This is my second year at the STEM Academy. I am a firm believer in teaching students through STEM. Hands-on, real life experiences are what cultivate a love for learning and memorable learning experiences.

I currently live in New Hampshire on a small farm with my husband and two-year-old daughter. We have Nigerian Dwarf goats, pot-bellied pigs, ducks, chickens, and a hard-working barn cat (the next addition will be honeybees!). When I get the opportunity, I love to bring the farm into the classroom. In addition to the farm, I volunteer at a dog rescue and currently have six rescue dogs on the farm.

When I am not teaching or working on my farm, I’m hitting the beach, camping, running, visiting Disney World, or enjoying some good coffee!
