Here's what 8th-grade student, Ashley Faria, had to say about Mr. Bernier:

One of the most dedicated instructors at our school is Mr. William Bernier who teaches 7th Grade English Language Arts at Westport Middle School. Though ELA can be an intimidating subject, Mr. Bernier strives to engage students for a complete and more precise understanding of the work. He does so by making the classes interesting and filled with humor. His explanation of the work can be quite comical; putting his students at ease. His love of eating junk food can be worked into an ELA writing piece. For example:

Question: If you had 20 Oreos and ate 2, what percentage would be left?

Answer: ZERO. Mr. Bernier would have eaten the rest with his chocolate milk.

On a serious note, Mr. Bernier is quick to acknowledge good character and goes above and beyond involving parents with their child's progress reaching out to them when necessary. I believe that Mr. Bernier would be a wonderful choice for "SouthCoast Teacher of the Month" or even better - "SouthCoast Teacher of the Year."

Congratulations to Mr. Bernier for being Fun 107's SouthCoast Teacher of the Month. As the winner of this month’s award, he will receive a $200 Amazon gift card so he can continue to make his classroom a fun place to learn for all students.

A special thank you to our sponsors A&M Driving School, McDonald’s, Bay State Gymnastics Academy, First Citizens Federal Credit Union, and Prima Care for helping to make this classroom even better.
