Hello my name is Mrs. Bernita Flannery and I teach K-12 Music.
I grew up in Warner, SD. After High School, I attended NSU and achieved my BS music degree. I live in Roscoe with my husband, Jim. I have three children. Corey and Lisa Flannery live at Chancellor, SD. They have four children. Nathaniel and Lori Flannery live in Aberdeen and have four children. Rachel has achieved a Masters Degree in Mental Health, and is working as a drug and alcohol counselor. She is engaged to John Binfet, Moorhead, MN, and is planning a wedding for September, 2017.
I started my teaching career in the Bridgewater/Emery School District. I taught at St. Mary's Catholic School in Salem, SD, before moving to Roscoe with my husband Jim. I then became the music teacher at the Hosmer school. After six years, I became the Music teacher at the Roscoe School. After four years, the Roscoe and Hosmer schools became Edmunds Central, where I continue to teach.
My favorite thing about my job is spending the entire day with young people. I have the huge reward of having and watching students mature and change through our 13 years of music together.
When I'm not teaching I enjoy baking, cooking, crocheting, and spending time with family. Especially our grandchildren!
