Bertrand's active pedagogical interest remains the concept of immersion language learning and its diversity, from simulated settings such as the Concordia Language Villages to more technological venues.

Bertrand earned her B.A. at Cornell College in Iowa and her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Iowa. She taught at Butler University and Indiana University in Indianapolis (IUPUI) .
