Welcome! Mrs. Janet Bernier is so excited to be part of the Esperanza Music Academy's Reading Interventionists' team! She is originally from the Midwest, spending most of her childhood in Michigan and on big Lake Michigan. After receiving her bachelors of science degree in Elementary Education, K - 8th gr. from the University of Utah, she moved to Arizona to start her teaching career. She has taught for several years teaching both in private and public schools both in regular and special education classrooms. She also has certification endorsements in the areas of Gifted, Early Childhood, and SEI (Structured English Immersion). It is her goal to be both an active and positive role model in the lives of children. Reading is essential to making future decisions because it allows children to understand their world. Mrs. Bernier hopes Esperanza students benefit from the advantages reading has to offer and learn to enjoy it as a lifelong hobby!
In her spare time, Mrs. Bernier enjoys traveling, hiking, swimming, reading, and needlepoint. My husband and I have three grown children, as well as three grandchildren, and a rescue Boston Terrier named Casey.
