About Mrs. Vitale
My name is Bernadette Vitale, and I teach 4th-grade Language Arts and Social Studies. This is my 23rd year teaching, my 17th in Ocean Springs. I received my BA in English from the University of Colorado in 1985 and my Teaching Certificate and Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from National University in 1997. I completed my National Board Certification in the area of Middle Childhood Generalist in 2005 and renewed my certification in 2015. My husband and I live in Woolmarket with our 4 dogs and 12 chickens. I am a life-long learner and teaching is my passion!

One-one booking times to meet with Mrs. Vitale

To help meet the needs of students with individual questions on academics, I've set up a "You Can Book Me" account. At this time, I've set them for 30 minute increments, but in the future may change it to 15 minutes if more people need access.
This is all new to me, so please be patient!  Try it out with this link:
