KILLBUCK SAVINGS BANK CO. SUPERSTAR ON STAFF: Mike Berg, 7/8 Math
Reason for selection:
Mr. Berg does a wonderful job in the classroom each day with his students and the understanding of math concepts. He works with students on a daily basis inside and outside the classroom to support their learning. He also has coached many student athletes and been a positive role model to all of them. We appreciate the hard work and kindness he brings to DMS each day!
1. What do you love about working at Dalton Local Schools?
I really enjoy our students and building relationships with them. I’m starting to have students of former students which says I’ve been here for awhile.
2. How did you get to where you are today?
I got into education initially because I wanted to be a coach, but then I discovered that I enjoyed teaching as well. My parents were both educators which helped in my decision. My high school english teacher, Rich Rohr, was an inspiration as a teacher and a coach and we are friends to this day.
3. Tell us one interesting little fact about yourself that people would be surprised to hear.
It’s hard to say anything surprising when you’ve been at the same school for 27 years. I suppose that some people might not know that I ran a half-marathon several years ago and would like to get to the point of doing it again.
