Julie Werry states, “‘Mrs. B’ as she is called is an amazing CHAMPion teacher! She is intentional about meeting every student where they are and emphasizing their strengths while at the same time gracefully addressing their challenge areas. She takes time to recognize students for the wonderful connections they are making to what they are studying. She takes pleasure in seeing that what her students learn in the classroom carries beyond the walls of the building and impacts them in their own worlds. She is a wonderful person, teacher and mentor especially during these times! My family is grateful to her and has relied on her heavily!”

Whitney and John Martin added, “Ms. Bernasconi leads her 1st grade class with incredible enthusiasm, grace and compassion. Each day she points out ways she ‘made a mistake’ or is ‘learning new things’ so that her classroom is a place of courage and growth. I can think of countless days that her leadership lifted up my daughter and also myself.”
