Heidi Scharfenstein

   Ms. Scharfenstein is excited to begin her 5th year here at St. Bernard Middle teaching ELA. This school brings more joy to her than she could have imagined and she can't wait to introduce her students to all the reasons why! Ms. Scharfenstein is looking forward to learning how your child best learns so she can help each student achieve his/her goal for the 2022-2023 school year as well as any dreams they have. 

   Ms. Scharfenstein was born and raised in St. Bernard Parish where she attended St. Mark School from kindergarten to 8th grade, and then went on to graduate from Archbishop Hannan High School. After graduating with a bachelors degree from Southeastern Louisiana University, she decided to stay another year and a half to earn a masters degree as well. Ms. Scharfenstein has a Master of the Arts in Organizational Communications. However, she felt that being a teacher was the career she was meant for. Finally, Ms. Scharfenstein was able to relocate back to St. Bernard and land a dream job teaching at our great school.

    Finally, Ms. Scharfenstein wants to be sure you know she is here to support your student any way she can. Please never hesitate to reach out to her concerning your child. While we all recognize the changes that we face, these challenges will be met with positivity and a want to help your child grow. Let's make 2022-2023 the best school year yet!
