Hello ! Welcome to Mrs. Bertram's Classroom!
Hello. Here's a little bit about me...I grew up in Beavercreek, Ohio (a suburb of Dayton). I graduated from Ohio State University, where I earned a BS in English Education. My husband, William, and I relocated to South Carolina in 1999 to be near his parents, who had retired from Huntington, New York to Lake Keowee.
I taught in Huber Heights, OH for 2 years prior to moving to the area. I began at Wren High School in 1999 when I first relocated to the community. Then I decided to spend some time with my family at home. After staying home for several years with my small children, I returned to Wren in 2006.
I was the Anderson ONE District Teacher of the Year for 2014-2015, and in August 2015 I graduated from Clemson University with my Masters in Educational Leadership; Administration and Supervision. Go Tigers!
I have one student attending Wren High School, one attending USC as a freshman, and one attending USC School of Medicine.
The 2019-2020 school year will be my third year as yearbook advisor. I have been in the FA since 2006 and moved to the upper building in 2018 for a change of pace.
I've been traveling throughout Europe as the group leader with students, teachers, and parents through EF Tours since 2012. In June of 2019 we traveled through central Europe for 15 days. Email me to learn more about our 2020 spring break tour to London, Paris and Rome or our June 2020 Scandinavian Tour.
