Title: Language Arts Educator, Adjunct Professor
Location: Salem, Oregon, United States
Gregory Berry, Language Arts Educator and Adjunct Professor, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in English and language arts education.
At an early age, Dr. Berry displayed an early interest in reading and came to the conclusion later on that a career in academia would combine his passions for literature and education. He started on his journey at Eastern Oregon University, whereupon he received a Bachelor of Arts in secondary education and English in 1986. He continued at the institution to receive a Master of Science in education in 1990. With a continued desire for learning that has driven his passion, he earned an EdD in educational leadership, curriculum and instruction from Portland State University in 2009. Dr. Berry considers the completion of the doctoral program to be among his top career highlights as he felt accomplished in achieving his goal and honored to participate in the graduation ceremony and formal robing tradition. As the first person in his family to receive a college degree, this was a big moment.
Dr. Berry began teaching language arts at the Ontario Junior High School in 1986, and continued at the Ontario High School to teach English and drama until 1998. During this time, he also instructed English at the Treasure Valley Community College. He has since been a language arts educator and adjunct professor at South Salem High School and Chemeketa Community College. Throughout his career, Dr. Berry has contributed to learning materials in the form of written work. He is the author of “Literacy for Learning: A Handbook of Content Area Strategies Middle and High School Teachers,” “Cultivating Adolescent Literacy: Standards, Strategies, and Performance Tasks for Improving Reading and Writing” and “Stronger Writing Skills for Teens: Modes, Methods, and Materials that Work.” Looking toward the future, Dr. Berry endeavors to retire from full-time teaching but continuing to explore academia through part-time positions.
