My name is Mrs. Katherine Bernhardt and I am the Gifted Education Resource teacher at Fred Lynn. I have been teaching in PWCS for 12 years. I hold my undergraduate degree in Music Education from Wingate University in Wingate, NC and my Masters degree in Education- Curriculum and Instruction Gifted Education from Liberty University in VA. I taught Chorus for two years before switching my teaching field. After receiving my endorsement in Gifted Education from the University of Virginia, I became a Gifted Resource teacher in PWCS. I have taught SIGNET at Fred Lynn for the past eight years. 

In addition to teaching SIGNET, I also coach volleyball and have coached at the middle and high school levels in PWCS. 

I am a former student of Occoquan Elementary, Fred Lynn Middle School and Woodbridge Senior High School. I am also a former SIGNET student.
