Mr. Bertell came in to see Dr. Chang for treatment, but he had no idea that he would be seeing his former 6th grade student. Mr. Bertell was Dr. Chang's 6th grade teacher at June Street Elementary School in Los Angeles. Although retired from teaching, Mr. Bertell still took his pen out and graded Dr. Chang's performance.
