Mr. Bergang has a BA in Geography from Clark University, Worcester, MA and a Masters in Secondary Education from Southern NH University. Mr. Bergang says, “I became a teacher because I always enjoyed working with young people. I get a thrill out of seeing my students challenge themselves, take risks, and discover new things about them and the world we live in. I like to provide my students with opportunities to challenge their conventions and ‘think outside of the box.’ Most importantly I like to instill a sense of humor into my daily teaching practice. My classroom is a place where students can feel comfortable and safe sharing their opinions, asking questions and overstepping their own boundaries.

Miss Miner earned her Bachelor’s at Notre Dame College in Manchester, and holds a dual certification in Elementary (K-8) and Special Education. Miss Miner writes, “Where does one begin with a biography? In summary, I've been curious about just about everything since I was an infant. What do you do as an adult so you can keep feeding that curiosity? You become a teacher.

My favorite part of Math and Science is allowing students to find patterns and think about the world around them through a different perspective. Strong Foundations is a great place for that.

“I grew up speaking both English and Spanish. Bilingualism is a great gift. It’s a superpower. My goal as a teacher of English as a Second Language is to help my students become fluent in English while retaining mastery of their first language. My goal as a Spanish teacher is to introduce my students to the wonderful worlds of Spanish-speaking cultures and literatures. I want all my students to reap the benefits of speaking more than one language. Bilingualism and multilingualism can lead to stronger brain functioning, higher incomes, and most importantly, a stronger sense of connection to the wider world.”
