  • Robert Bertke, Assistant Principal

    Hello, and welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Robert Bertke and I am the 8th grade Assistant Principal for the Middle School at Parkside. This is my 7th year at Parkside and my 1st year as an administrator. I was fortunate enough to start my career in education here at Parkside where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science. I most recently taught 7th grade science and look forward to moving into 8th grade with students and families I have connected with. Over these past 6 years, I have built a strong sense of belonging and love for this school and the Jackson community. I am excited to start this year off strong and get back to focusing on the greatness the Middle School at Parkside has to offer.
