“My son was in Mr. Bertsch’s first grade classroom and I worked as a substitute teacher for many years at the same school. Mr. Bertsch has one of the most thorough understandings of social emotional teaching that I have witnessed. He is able to connect with students as people, not just as students. His teachings around kindness ripples and how we are all part of a bigger world really resonate with children. Social responsibility is something that all students should be exposed to, and he definitely did that! Mr. Bertsch would also use music, puppets, and had a great reading style that entertained not only the students, but any adults that happened to be in the room!

If you want your child to have a teacher who will not only give them what they need academically, but help shape them into little kindness warriors, then look no further!”
