My Favorite Teacher: Bruce Berman

Updated: Feb 22

Submitted by: Curtiss Carter '83


"Mr. Bermen" took a class clown like me and taught me things I never imagined I would use in "real life."


He took a bunch of us on an overnight camping trip -- something a 15-year-old from Mattapan had never done -- and although it was supposed to have been a "learning" trip, we had so much fun learning!"


Additional tributes to Mr. Berman from EHS alumni on Facebook:


Bruce Berman was kind of a Hippie type cat and taught Biology and I was scared of the class so I cut his class everyday. He caught me and sat down and spoke to me and asked why did cut his class everyday and I told I was scared and didn't understand what Biology was about. He said how come you didn't come to me earlier. He set me up with a tutor -- I've forgotten the tutor's name she was from BU and African American -- and that turn my life around and others Coaches Don Burgess, Don Speaks, Sid Yeldell and can't forget Mary Fahey grateful for all of them. --- From Ernest Gist '83, English High in the 70's FB Page
