About Me:

Hi everyone! I am Mrs. Berta, and I am excited to be your teacher this year. I have taught at Williamsburg since 2019 and coached the high school volleyball team since the 2017 inaugural season. I love coaching volleyball with my husband (Mr. Berta) who is an elementary special education teacher at Williamsburg! I played volleyball at University of the Cumberlands (2013-2015) and I have coached various teams since 2013.

When I am not in my classroom or in the gym you can find me hiking, looking for salamanders, or sitting on my couch with my cats. I am excited to get to know you and to talk about science with you!
