Mrs. Joanne Bernard, 7th Grade STEM Lead Teacher
I have been with Cabarrus County Schools for most of my teaching career including six years teaching at Rocky River Elementary and five years at JN Fries before the magnet program started.
I've been teaching in the STEM program at JN Fries since it began in 2011. In those years I've had the pleasure of teaching sixth, seventh, and eighth grade and working with many wonderful teachers, students, and parents.
This year I am excited to serve as the STEM Lead Teacher for 7th grade. I will be working with all the teachers and students throughout the year.
I am currently helping with record keeping for Mrs. Widenhouse's former math classes. Feel free to email me your questions. Please include your/your child's class period in the email. If you need to let me know about late or missing work that you are submitting, please use the link found on the math Canvas page.
