My god was he the most sarcastic, blunt teacher I've ever had. Just like the poster he had on his wall- he's allergic to bull. But, he is extremely knowledgable. Like ridiculously knowledgeable. I just wish he'd be slightly more helpful and not so sarcastic when students are having a difficult time understanding certain assignments, etc. It's like he knows so much he kinda just expects the students to get it as much as he does.
One of the most underestimated teachers at EMHS. He knows the California History standards like the palm of his hand; I never saw him use an outline or notes to lecture! But that's probably because he's been a teacher for 3282034 YEARS.
He's WAS a true EMHS gem.
good teacher. he was great. infact i would've failed my class twice to be with him even longer! But sadly, he retired
One of the best at EMHS. I used his notes for my college history class. Challenging class, but I learned a lot.
He's a really good history teacher. I actually learn something out of that class compare to my previous history teachers (they just give you notes and more notes and expect you to know)
he's hilarious and he teaches very well. you can tell that he's a very smart man. hands down the best history teacher i've ever had!
Very, very underrated teacher. One of my favorite classes at EMHS.
I'm from class 03' and I took Mr. Bertonneau's honors class. I'll never forget his jokes. He knows his history very well. I had fun making historical video projects.
us hist hnrs:Tests purely based on the notes he gives you.Just study/memorize the notes like a story and you'll get an A on his tests.If you dont cite your papers right, he'll give you an F for it.
Bertonneau is the MAN!!!!! Greatest teacher ever! He is a very funny guy, plus he is a Dodger fan so that makes him even cooler
omg! he is so the bomb! I took his class last year for us honors,first period! yay! as long as you pay attention, he is one of the best teachers in emhs! class of 07! I love his jokes! and when i grow up, im gonna be like him
Bertonneau is by far the best teacher I had in High School. He's very straightforward and funny even when he's mad. His method of teaching is pretty oldschool but he gets the point across on what he wants us to no.
i'm from the class of '03, i took him and he's a really cool teacher. He clarify himself pretty good since all he talked about in the lecture is basically written on the black board. Just don't get on his bad side!
Really really cool teacher. He has his opinions and teaches students the importance of them finding their own opinions and sticking to it.
Hes one of the greatest teachers in there.he had modd swings only twice.don't get on his bad side.work real hard.he likes south park, how cool is that!Honors class of '05 rocked!!!
omg! "BDiDDY" rocks!! lols. he's like sooo hip. "they money" lols. jstkidding. on a more serious note, i think he's a great teacher and i learn a lot from him. i like that he's so opinionated and so firm about his belief. oh, and he hates stupid people, which is a good trait for a teacher. =]
He's a good teacher! Knows how to teach very well and gives good opinions. Plus he's funny too.
He is so cool! He's very straight forward, down to earth, funny, and helpful. He goes out of his way to help his students.
i was in his US history honors and class and it was fun. He has a great personality and sense of humor but quite often also have some mood swings.
He is smart but could be a little less arrogant and condescending. Dont let him intimidate you! Just do your homework, study for tests and you'll be fine.
hey...well i think that he is an awsome teacher...and loves what he does...he loves history and has made me realize the importance of it...thank you
Excellent teacher, however many students at school are too immature to realize his talents so they decide to pick on him and give him a hard time.
