Anita Gerberry

Salem Elementary (Columbus City)


Anita individualizes instruction for each child by teaching children in small groups the entire day. She has a special way to make the kids feel good and learn at high levels. She uses technology to help students learn at their levels and help build a bridge between school and home learning. She gives new meaning for teaching all children! She works to build unity among teachers in the school. Recently a parent came to me in tears as she told me her daughter is reading books. Another little boy with behavior challenges begged to read his book to me. He proudly said "Mrs. Gerberry taught me!" In my 21 years of serving in Columbus City Schools, Mrs. Gerberry is the kindest and best Kindergarten teacher I have ever worked with!
