Welcome to 2nd grade! I am excited to embark this new journey with you and your family. Thank you for allowing me to teach your child the fundamental parts of learning. It is my goal to exceed your child's expectations for the year and instill a love of reading (if they don't already love it!) and ignite the mathematician within. This will be my 7th year teaching and my 2nd year at Groves. I love teaching our future leaders and I am excited to make this our best year yet!

    I graduated with honors from University of Houston (GO COOGS!) with my B.A. in Early Childhood Education.Teaching children is what I have wanted to do since I was a child myself. It is important to me to show students that they are capable of creating goals and reaching them through perseverance and self-efficacy. I enjoy teaching students, who are not a fan of reading, that there is a world of knowledge and love in books waiting for them and sometimes it just takes a little longer to find the right one!

     The Hernandez family is a family of four, plus our two fur pets, Gordo and Bella. My husband, Joe, and I have two sweet boys, Joshua and Aiden. You will usually find us playing outdoors, or enjoying our family movie and game nights. My favorite me time is sitting outside on my backyard patio, curled up with a good book!

    Those who know me, know that I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I have been since I picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone when it first came out. J.K Rowling has created such wonderful fictional stories filled with powerful lessons about friendships, bravery, love, and so many other principles. There really are soo many reasons why I love these books, and movies!
