JH History Teacher
B.A., Anthropology, CSUN
Mrs. Tartaglia is an alumna of Berkeley Hall School, and BHS changed her life! She attended BHS for only one year, her ninth grade year, and had such wonderful, nurturing teachers, particularly Mrs. O’Connor who skillfully taught Algebra, English, and History. However, Mrs. O’Connor really taught so much more than just those academic subjects. Mrs. O’Connor taught by example, how to be more gentle, gracious, kind, and humble. She has taught at Berkeley Hall since the fall of 2000. All three of her children attended BHS.
Why do I love teaching? When I first thought about teaching at Berkeley Hall School, I remembered how much BHS had changed my life, and I wanted to give back to this amazing school. I love teaching the students at BHS about history! It is so important for all of us to truly appreciate and better understand all of the many different peoples and cultures of the world and the wonderful country which we call home. It is my hope that when students learn about and understand other cultures and see people in this country and around the world as their brothers and sisters, then this country and the world will become a more loving place for everyone.
