Hello! My name is Jessica Bernard and I teach 4th and 5th grade! This is my fifth year at Cherokee Heights. Before coming to Cherokee, I taught for 10 years at another school in Saint Paul. I went to Minnesota State University Moorhead for my undergrad degree and Hamline University for my graduate degree. I enjoy traveling, drinking coffee and biking. I'm so excited for this school year!
