One of my amazing students

Autumn has worked with me for the past three years.  Here she is reading her own poetry.

  • I worked as a paraprofessional with Mr. Bertsch during Covid while being remote. I just want to say that he is a fantastic teacher. The growth I saw in students that year was tremendous. Even being remote he was able to engage with students and get them excited about learning. He is the kind of teacher I would want for my daughter to have. He makes learning fun, the way it should be.
