Mike Reiss (second in the back row) on the 1975 Bristol Eastern High School
Mathematics Team. As well as Mr. Kozikowski, who coached the team and
appears in the photograph, Reiss had many other mathematical mentors.
For example, Reiss’s geometry teacher was Mr. Bergstromm. In an episode
titled “Lisa’s Substitute” (1991), Reiss showed his gratitude by naming Lisa’s
inspirational substitute teacher Mr. Bergstromm.
