I graduated from the University of South Florida in 2002 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  This is my 12th year teaching and my second year teaching 5th grade. 


I earned my Master's degree in Children's Literacy Development through Trident University.

2012-2013 - 5th Grade


     My name is Irene Cerna and I am a native Arcadian, born and raised.  I have three children and a wonderful husband of 16 years.  I attended Memorial Elementary School, DeSoto Middle School, DeSoto High School, South Florida Community College,  University of South Florida, and Trident University.  At USF, I majored in Elementary Education and earned a  Master's degree in Children's Literacy through Trident University.  Since the time I could remember, I always wanted to be a 3rd grade teacher and my hard work finally paid off when I was hired at WES as a 3rd grade teacher in August of 2002.  I love to spend time with my family and especially love to dive into a great book.
