Bertha Myers joined the University of Louisiana at Lafayette as a full time instructor after 33 years in the public school system.  She first earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Upper Elementary Education from the same university in December of 1974.  After teaching language arts in a junior high setting in Iberia Parish for two years she entered the Master’s program at USL (University of Southwestern Louisiana).  Continuing to teach at the junior high level after her Master’s Degree she was provided opportunities to serve on many parish committees focusing on curriculum improvements. Because of this experience she was one of the first Administrative Assistants appointed in middle level education. 
Her interests in middle level education lead to an opportunity to develop online professional development modules for Northwestern State University.  These modules were used throughout the state of Louisiana to facilitate the training of teachers in the middle school concept.   Using these modules as a springboard she went on to pursue her Educational Specialist Degree at Northwestern State University in 2002 with a concentration in educational technology. 

In 1997 she was appointed Principal of Belle Place Middle in New Iberia.  Within one year she had transformed the school from the typical junior high setting to a middle school with educational teams.  In 2004 she was named Regional Principal of the Year for the work accomplished.  She finished her public school educational career in 2008.  Teaching an introductory course in education as an adjunct instructor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette led her to her current career.  Currently she teaches educational courses.  Since beginning her career at the university she has developed one of her courses as a hybrid course with both face to face and online instruction.
