Caitlin Berka


Caitlin comes to Mid-Peninsula after two years at a small, independent school in rural Virginia, where she taught English and directed and choreographed in the drama program. She is passionate about helping students develop their own unique voices, both on the page and on the stage. 

Caitlin believes the classroom can be a fantastic place for students to learn to critically examine the world around them. She also enjoys teaching students about the many ways in which literature and drama can speak to their own lives and experiences.

Caitlin is also an opera singer who has performed in numerous venues throughout the Bay Area. She loves knitting, tea, thunderstorms, and the rock bands of the British Invasion.
