Forty years pass quickly when you love what you do for a living. Just ask Bob Wertz, who is wrapping up four decades of teaching in the Rowland Unified School District.
"I stayed because I've always loved my job so much," explained Wertz, deputy superintendent for administrative services. He has done well for someone who started as a school janitor.
"I got a job as a janitor in a West Covina school to help pay for college," Wertz, 65, recalled.
He got his first teaching assignment in 1968 as a student teacher in Rowland Unified. And Wertz never left, unless you count the two years when he was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War.
