Hello! My name is Bertha Phelps and I am the Jr/Sr High School Administrative Secretary. Tekonsha Community Schools has been like a second home to me since 1969 when I started 7th grade at THS. Upon graduation in June of 1975, I married my high school sweetheart,Eric Phelps, on July 4, 1975. We have lived in Tekonsha since our marriage. We have 2 children, Jamie, who married Brad Thomas, is a math teacher at Union City Middle School, and Eric, who married Stacey Woods, helps operate the family farm alongside his father and grandfather and also owns the Seven Deuce with his wife. I have 7 wonderful granddaughters, Alexis, Autumn, Aislynn, Ambrielle, Kaylee, Brooke, and Kacey. Outside of school, I spend time with my family, but mostly enjoy being a spectator in the crowd at one of the many activities that my granddaughters are part of. I started my career here at Tekonsha Schools as a bus driver. Eventually, I came inside as the athletic secretary, classroom paraprofessional, working in the kitchen, noon time supervisor, coach, and eventually being offered the job that I have now. Although this job can be very challenging at times, the rewards of watching the students grow and graduate from here year after year outweigh the challenges of this job! Go Indians!!!
