Welcome back, Bobcats! This school year promises to be fan amazing year. I plan to do my best to help you navigate through your fifth grade year with as few bumps and lumps as possible. Hi, my name is Earnestine Berryman. I am one of the fifth grade Reading Language Arts teachers. I have been a part of Hempstead Elementary for three years. This year begins my fourth year here and my second in fifth grade. I previously taught fourth grade reading and writing. I also teach fifth grade social studies. I am looking forward to this next great adventure we call a new school year.
