Degrees and Certifications:


Hello my name is Ms. Berntsen,
I am so excited to be teaching at Eagleside Elementary this school year! I graduated from Truman State University with a BS in Anthropology/
Sociology and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I am from St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Colorado to live out my dream of being a
5th-grade teacher!

I spent this past school year in Southern California where I taught science, leadership, and outdoors skills to 5th and 6th graders. I love to travel and have been to 13 countries. My favorite place in the world is Glacier National Park in Montana. This summer, I enjoyed exploring nature in Montana, Washington, and Alaska.
