Mrs. April Bernier
Hi! My name is April Bernier and this is my tenth 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, and Wake Early College of Health and Sciences. Now I am excited to be part of the 8th grade team at Riverwood!
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, and spending time with my family.
Please feel free to contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
