Bernadine Silva

Hello!

My name is Bernadine Silva and I am happy to be joining the Fort Worth ISD as a music teacher.  I am bringing with me 9 years of full-time teaching experience.

My love for school led me to earn my bachelor’s degree and master’s degree.  I am grateful to my parents for their love, care and support during my life.

In my spare time I like to sew, and dear to my heart is the quilt work I do for Project Linus. 

I wish you all a rewarding school year!
