Holly Corzine Bernard
I am so excited to be your child's teacher at Walker Freshman High School! Teaching is my dream and I am so excited to be living my dream at Walker Freshman!
I have been happily married for 25 years and have 2 children. Wil is 20 years old and a sophomore at Southeastern. Madelyn is 19 years old and freshman at Southeastern. My husband, Dr. Arthur Bernard, is also an educator. He is an Assistant Principal at Walker Freshmen High School. He completed his doctoral degree at Southeastern in Education Leadership in 2013.
My husband and I met in August 1990 as counselors at Parkview Baptist Day Camp. Four years later we were married. In the summertime, my husband and I still worked at Parkview Baptist Day Camp until our children were too old to attend. He was the director and I was an Assistant Director. It is so much fun to go to camp with our own kids and enjoy our summers together!
I graduated from LSU in 1994 with a degree in Political Science and History. I attended Law School at LSU for 1 year and decided that was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. In 1996, I obtained a position with the Louisiana State Police as a computer programmer. I enjoyed my work at the State Police. I became a manager of a computer programming team and we supported several computer needs of State Police including the LSP website and the Emergency Operations Center during hurricanes and other events. In 2007, I got the opportunity to work at my alma mater LSU. I loved my new job but still felt that I was not exactly where I should be.
A friend told me about LRCE, Louisiana Resource Center for Educators. LRCE provides a number of services for the education community including a teacher certification program. I went through the rigorous summer training and student taught at River Oaks Elementary. I then obtained a teaching position at South Walker Elementary. I was at South Walker for 8 years and I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach at the secondary level. This is my fourth year at WFHS. I am certified to teach Social Studies and Science for grades 6-12, secondary electives and elementary grades pre-k-5.
My goal to be the best teacher I can be. I strive to be the kind of teacher that I would want my children to have. The Livingston Parish School System is one of the best in the state and I am proud to be a part of it!
