New BRMS Staff Members

Berta Frank is a native of New York City and a professional flutist. She attended Performing Arts High School and Juilliard Pre-College, continued on to Sarah Lawrence College for her BA and Columbia University Teachers College for her MA in Music Education.  Before she was 21 she was a soloist in NYC at Alice Tully and Carnegie Recital Halls.  She plays principal flute with the Burlington Chamber Orchestra, the Opera Company of Middlebury and is a member of The Heliand Consort and Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble.  She has participated in music festivals throughout the world and worked as a staff member with the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association for over 20 years while maintaining an active flute studio.

Berta moved to Jericho, VT in 1993 where she currently lives with her husband Jeff York, their two children Zev & Ayla, plus their 2 dogs.  Both of her children attended BRMS and are now continuing their academic education at MMU where Zev will be a senior. She is an enthusiastic gardener who also enjoys vegetarian cooking, hand crafts, travel and sailing with her husband. She is grateful and excited to join the BRMS staff this fall!

This year will be my first as the new Physical Education teacher at Browns River Middle School.  I'm from a small town in upstate New York called Canajoharie, which is about 45 minutes west of Albany.  

 

In May 2013 I graduated from The State University of New York College at Cortland with a BSEd in Physical Education Teaching (K-12).  I also currently hold Physical Education teaching licenses in both New York and Vermont.  At the moment I am pursuing my Masters degree in Athletic/Sport Administration through Western Kentucky University.  

 

Aside from teaching PE at BRMS, I will also be the Boys B Team Soccer coach.  In the past I have been a Junior Varsity Football coach for Fonda-Fultonville High School (NY), as well as an Varsity Assistant Basketball coach, also at Fonda-Fultonville.  


I look forward to having a great year with all of my students and athletes at BRMS!

My name is Ainee Commichau and I am excited to be working alongside Tina Gallagher
as a school nurse for Browns River Middle School. 
I attended Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles, CA) and received a Bachelor 
of Arts in Psychology. Shortly after that, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing 
at Hawaii Pacific University (Kaneohe, HI). I have been working in the acute care 
setting since 1997, specifically in the Intensive Care Unit. I have worked in the 
Surgical ICU at Fletcher Allen Health Care since my husband and I moved here 
from NYC in 2004. I’ve been working as an ICU nurse for the last fifteen years but 
focused on my family the last eight years. I was lucky enough to substitute as a 
school nurse last year and could not pass the opportunity to join the BRMS team. 
I live in Jericho with my husband, two beautiful kids (both attend JES), three dogs, a 
fish and a panther gecko. Although I was born and raised in Hawaii (Island of Oahu), 

I love living here in VT. My family and I make the most of ALL the seasons; from 
biking and hiking in the summer & fall to downhill skiing and snowshoeing in the 
winter & early spring.  I look forward to new experiences and meeting more members
of this wonderful community.

I am very excited to be joining the BRMS team as a 5/6 Special Educator.  I truly enjoy working with middle school students, and finding creative ways to make learning fun and meaningful.     

 

I attended the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I received an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Masters of Special Education.  After training in the Chicago city schools, I worked as a Special Educator for five years, in both Virginia and Vermont, teaching 5th and 6th grades.   I have also worked as an Educational Diagnostician, and served as a School Director on my local school board.  Most recently, I have enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom to my three children.  I am thrilled to be re-entering the teaching profession, and excited to be doing so at BRMS!

 

I live in Essex with my husband, three children, two dogs, and cat.  We enjoy spending time together as a family, and enjoy all the activities that Vermont has to offer.  My favorite way to relax, is sitting on my front porch with a good book!
