Ms. Bernard

Welcome Families! My name is Jessica Bernard. I will be teaching 4th grade this year! 


A few things about me~ This is my 17th year of teaching and my 7th year in Saint Paul Public Schools. I started at Chelsea Heights 2 years ago and absolutely LOVE IT. This is a special place and I feel so grateful to be here for another year. I have 2 kids of my own; Amos is going into 5th grade and Olive is going into 3rd grade. I love coffee, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, yoga and reading. I also love to travel and hope to do more of that this year...fingers crossed!  


Email is the best way to get ahold of me and I try to be quick to respond! Please reach out with any questions or wonderings, and I will do my best to answer! I will be sending weekly updates via email. This is a great way to find out what's happening in our classroom, announcements about field trips/important dates and what we're learning. 


Looking forward to an amazing 2022-2023 school year together!
