6th 7th 8th Grade SDC - Gertz, Mary Jane
My name is Mrs. Gertz. I am the 5th generation of my family growing up on the Peninsula. My grandfather had a chicken farm in Menlo Park. During World War 2 my father, aunt, and grandfather were involved in helping holocaust survivors. My father was a holocaust liberator and received a special medal from The White House for his heroism. My mother was one of the first female innovators at Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto. My family always taught me that education is very important in order to get where you want to go in life.
I graduated from San Carlos High School, my undergraduate studies were at CSU Chico and UC Davis are in the area of Animal Science/Vet Science . I attended CSU Hayward and Project Pipeline for my teaching credential, and University of the Pacific for my graduate studies, with dissertations in the areas of Autism and Bipolar Disorders.
