Mrs. Bertrand, THANK YOU

After over 38 years of teaching in the Archdiocese of Chicago, Mrs. Mary Pat Bertrand has decided to retire to spend more time with family and friends. We have been honored to have Mrs. Bertrand here at St. John de la Salle for 7 years. She spent over 30 years teaching at St. Florian in Hegewisch until the school closed in 2016.

Mrs. Bertrand, we love your small group instructions, lessons, team mentality, beautiful crafts and projects, amazing Graduation programs, songs, stories, and more. Thank you for planning wonderful field trips. We will MISS YOU and wish you the best. We will be celebrating Mrs. Bertrand and her dedication to Catholic Education in a few weeks. Please join us in extending best wishes to Mrs. Bertrand!
