Mrs. Bernard

My name is Ashley Bernard and I am one of the ESL teachers at Hermansen Elementary School. I have been teaching at KLH since 2013. My job at KLH is to support the students and teachers with students that have another language spoken at home. I love working with students to provide strategies and skills to be successful in the classroom.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter, and my two cats.

In order to get a hold of me, please call the school at (815)886-7581 to leave me a message. I will get back to you as soon as I can. The easiest way to contact me is via email at
