SHS English teacher Caitlin Bergeron recently took a new position as the interim English Department Chair for SPS. She is excited by the opportunity to try something new and thinks every English teacher is an amazing, hardworking educator. Despite her enthusiasm, Bergeron does miss working with SHS freshmen because the first year of high school is a very informative year. In her former role as a freshman English teacher, she enjoyed the ability to help her students along, including teaching them values to assist their personal growth. 

Believing students represent the heart and soul of a school, Bergeron said she comes to work each day looking forward to seeing the students. 

A graduate of Westwood High School in Westwood, MA, Bergeron enjoyed her high school years, which is one reason she loves to teach–because she also loves to learn! As a high school student, she admired her teachers and liked being involved in the school community. For her undergraduate degree in education, Bergeron attended Boston College in Newton, MA. She completed her Master’s degree at Boston University and is currently working toward her CAGS certificate in educational leadership.

This is Bergeron’s sixth year teaching at SHS. Although she doesn’t have a favorite class, she really enjoys teaching this year’s graphic novels elective for seniors. She said the class has a specific focus that doesn’t get much attention in the core English classes, but there is still valuable information that can be learned.
