All About Me

Hello, 2nd Grade Sunshines!
My name is Vanessa Berna and I am going to be teaching 2nd grade at Nichols Sawmill Elementary! I graduated from Tarleton State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education, a Specialization in Reading and Physical Education, and a Certification in ESL. I completed my Masters Degree in Early Childhood at the University of Houston Clear Lake and am excited about continuing to grow as a teacher! I have been in education for 19 years and am just as eager to begin my 20th year as I was to begin my 1st year! This will be my 4th year teaching at Nichols Sawmill Elementary, as well as living in Magnolia, and my family and I are very proud to call Magnolia our home!
I married my high school sweetheart, who is the Athletic Director for Magnolia ISD! We are over-joyed about raising our 6 year-old daughter, Tatum Paige, in this delightful community! As a family, we enjoy traveling, hiking, spending time with our family and friends, watching and playing sports, going to church, and playing with our 25-pound Yorkie, Rookie! 
Our school year will be full of fun-filled learning experiences for the entire family! I look forward to getting to know you and your families and hope that you will enjoy being a part of our 2nd Grade Family! Please feel free to email me at or call the office at (281)252-2133 if you have any questions or concerns.
Here's to an awesome year in 2nd Grade!
Up, Up, and Away! Together, we will touch the sky!
Mrs. Berna
