As a non-traditional student, she went back to school after her three sons were grown, to finish her degree. She completed a degree in Secondary English Education in 1987 and a Masters in 1990. Berryman taught English for four years at Torrington High School and was simultaneously an adjunct at WNCC. I just enjoy being around students. Its a great feeling to work with students especially when a student comprehends a concept, when a light comes on and they get it, Berryman commented. Berryman lives in Torrington with husband Jim.
