Ending on a high note: Park High School music teacher retiring
High points in Peter Bergman's 22-year career teaching band at Oltman Junior High and three years at Park High School came every day.
"It's rare when I don't have a moment during the day when I say, 'Yes, we got it,'" he said in an interview. "It energizes the students when they get it."
Bergman tells students when they don't get it and it stays with them, he said. "I think, as teachers, that that's what we're supposed to do."
