About Ms. Bertocchi
Hi! My name is Gina Bertocchi and I am very excited about the upcoming year. I am dedicated to making your child's experience in second grade one of the most successful and positive years your child will have.
Your child’s success is my first priority. I care very much about my students, and I strive to help them learn in a safe and challenging environment. I focus on building a sense of community in my classroom where every student feels important and loved.
To help you get to know me, here is a little about myself. I was born in Arizona but moved to Washington DC and Citrus Heights, California before returning to Arizona and attending Dobson High. I graduated from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!) with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and earned my Master's of Education from Northern Arizona University. I started teaching kindergarten in 1994 at Sureno and moved to second grade in 2006. I have many hobbies such as reading, cooking, and running. I am a huge football and hockey fan, with the Cardinals, Redskins, Sun Devils and Coyotes being my favorites. I also have a naughty cat named Scout. I am sure you will hear plenty of stories about her this year!
I am looking forward to the upcoming school year. Let's have fun learning and growing together!
