Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jill Shubik
I am Jill Shubik and I teach high school English. I earned my degree in Secondary English Education in 2007 at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. Shortly after, I got hired at Berlin as a 7-12 English teacher. I currently teach English 10 Honors, Career Prep English 11, Career Prep English 12, as well as an elective poetry class. I am the sophomore class advisor and a member of the high school's SAP team.
My goal as a teacher is to help each student discover his/her path in life. I provide my students with life's essential reading, writing, and speaking tools so that they can be successful and find happiness in whatever they do after high school.
I feel very lucky to teach in this wonderful community. I am proud to be a Berlin Mountaineer and to be a part of this great district.
