  • Mr. Bertsch,

    My favorite thing about you is the way you handle things. You are kind and patient, two major qualities we all need a little more of in this world. You not only teach math and reading but you also teach about life, feelings and positivity and so much more. I’m a big fan of yours Mr Bertsch. Thank you so much for all you do for us.
