José Cortez is a bilingual educator, designer, and successful entrepreneur that has become a creative voice in education. His company, BERTEAU & Co., has sold organizational products to educators across the world, including Spain, South Korea, Qatar, Denmark, and Australia. His company became very involved with the Get Your Teach Conference back in 2017, where he designed swag products for educators that reached the hands of over 20,000 educators over the span of 4 years. José was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX, but he also lived in San Luis Potosi, Mexico during part of his adolescence. That is where he learned Spanish fluently, and gained a love and appreciation for his heritage and culture. Teaching bilingual 4th grade Math and Science is one of the highlights of his career and something he would love to do again in the future.
