Who is Gert?
G.E.R.T. is an acronym for General Education with Respect to Turtles. Gert’s goal is to inspire children to develop a curiosity of the world around them and an ability to “see” using all of their senses.
Gert hopes that children will grow to understand that their world is uniquely theirs. To make the most of their world, they need to develop an enthusiasm and capacity for learning, while absorbing and appreciating their surroundings every day.
Gert encourages children to explore their world through her stories, music, and colorful pictures. Gert’s mission is also to financially support sea turtles and schools, beginning in South Carolina.
