Mrs. Jessica Bernard

Hello! My name is Jessica Bernard and I teach 3rd and 4th grade! This is my second 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 have 2 children of my own, a 4 year old and a 3 year old. My husband and I live on the east side of Saint Paul. I enjoy traveling, drinking coffee and running.
