Elizabeth Bergman

Ph.D. - History & Humanities Educator
Dr. Bergman is an award-winning scholar of U.S. history and an experienced educator who served on the faculty at UT-Austin and Princeton before choosing to move into secondary education.
She received her B.A. from Columbia (magna cum laude) and Ph.D. from Yale (with distinction), earned tenure at UT-Austin, and was recruited to Princeton, where she taught for 10 years. Her books and articles on U.S. cultural history have garnered multiple national awards, and she now inspires students at Geffen Academy to adopt a “scholarly mindset” (beyond “growth mindset”) that embraces complexity, honors diverse perspectives, and approaches history not as a debate but a dialogue that demands deep listening.
