       Welcome to Mr. Berta's HASD web page!  Here you will find some information about classes I teach including lesson plans and links to relevant sites and information.  Most if not all of the materials for my classes will be found on Rocket.Chat.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
       A little about me:
       I was born and raised in Sugarloaf, and my father instilled an interest in computers in me at a very young age.  I have always loved working with people and knew since elementary school that I wanted to become a teacher.  I taught computer classes for six years in the Hamburg Area School District followed by eight years teaching computer courses in the Mahanoy Area School District.  Despite working in other locations, I have always lived in the Hazleton area.  I am extremely excited to be working in the place I've always called my home!  In my spare time, in addition to computers and technology, I enjoy golf, exercise, amateur weather forecasting, and spending time with my family.  Every summer, I volunteer as a counselor at Pocono Plateau Youth Music Camp.  The past five years I had the opportunity to be the Program Director for the camp.  I am also the advisor for the iWorkout Club.  Please join us Mondays and Wednesdays starting September 16th 2019 from 2:40-3:55.
