     I look forward to helping students make wonderful music! 
    Hello, My name is Mrs. Bernstrom. I am the band director for all 6th,7th and 8th graders here at Maplewood Middle School as well as our district beginning band,  and district-wide 7-12th grade United Marching Band. This is my 22nd year teaching in district #622, and I am excited for another great year!  
    I grew up in Maplewood and graduated from our very own Tartan High School. I went on to pursue my love of music and education and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree from Concordia University in Instrumental Music Education, Band, Orchestra and Classroom Music. I also graduated with my Master's of Education degree in Teaching and Learning from Saint Mary's University. 
    Please contact me if you have any questions, I look forward to working with your child!
    "I love to teach and I love music, but I really love teaching kids how to love music!"
