Ms. Trish Gertsma
My name is Miss Trish! I am a primary teacher at The Honors Academy of Literature. I received my bachelor’s degree from Western Governors University in Interdisciplinary Studies. I started at Honors Academy of Literature as a student teacher in 2019. I am excited to teach primary this year. One thing I have noticed is that many people do not like math, and I would like to help others find the joy in Math. I would love to help every scholar grow and learn to love all subjects in school. Outside of the Honors Academy of Literature, I like to spend my time training, competing and coaching Jiu-Jitsu. I have been training Jiu Jitsu since 2016. I absolutely love it. I try to get myself out of my comfort zone to grow as much as I can. Off of the mats, I like to hike, read, and spend time with my friends and family. To get out of my comfort zone this year, I have started to learn how to golf. Every year, I try something new! I challenge you to try something new, and tell me all about it!
I am super excited for our 2023-2024 school year!
