Mrs. Bertini's Room
Welcome to a new school year! I am very excited to embark on this journey of learning together with you. Each day we will remind ourselves why we are here at school...to learn and grow individually and as a team of learners. As your teacher, it is my responsibility to support you in any way that I can to ensure that you have a productive and rewarding school year.
Here is a little bit about myself :
I am a Graduate of West Seneca West Senior High School, Go Indians! I received my Bachelor's Degree at Gannon University in Erie, PA and my Master's Degree at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. I have been teaching for 18 years, 2 years as a private school PreK teacher and for 16 years as a publicschool special education teacher and have loved every minute of it.
I am married and have 2 children. When I am not in the school building, I spend my time as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, PTA parent and a dancing school mom. I am excited to be the Dance Team advisor here at West as I have 35 years of dance experience including college level dance team. My hobbies include reading, music and theater.
My favorite sports teams are the Bills, the Sabres and the Mets...yes I understand that this is the trifecta for heartbreak...but I am a strong woman! My love for all things Disney helps me to remain the "Happiest Teacher On Earth".
I am usually available after school until 3:30 a minimum of 3 days a week, more often I am after all 5 days...just can't get enough of this awesome building.
Parents/Guardians- if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, I am just a phone call or e-mail away. If I cannot immediately support you, I will do my best to refer you to whoever can.
