Mrs. April Bernier

Hi!  My name is April Bernier and this is my eleventh year teaching.  I grew up in Rhode Island and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences from Smith College in 2006.  I taught for six years in Rhode Island before moving to North Carolina in 2015.  Since then, I have taught at Johnston County Early College Academy, Innovation Academy, Wake Early College of Health and Sciences, and Riverwood Middle School.  Now I am excited to be part of the science department at Clayton High School!

My approach to teaching is student-centered, open-ended, and focused on critical thinking and creativity.  It is important to me that my students learn not only science facts, but also how to think like scientists.  I also work hard to make sure students understand the real world applications of each topic we study.  Finally, I try to give my students as much control over their learning and achievement as possible.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, biking, woodworking, camping, and spending time with my family.

Please feel free to contact me by email:
