About Mrs. Hernandez
Welcome back Panthers! I am so excited about this school year! I grew up in Irving, Texas and went to Fort Worth Christian School along with Miss Barrow. I attended the University of Texas at Austin. HOOK 'EM! I completed my master's degree from the University of North Texas in Special Education with an emphasis in Autism Intervention. I am starting my 5th year at University Park Elementary and my 11th year of teaching.
I married my longtime college friend Casey after he completing his time in the USMC. We love spending time with friends and our Goldendoodle, Otis. I love going to sporting events for the Dallas Mavericks and the Texas Longhorns. I always enjoy a good concert, hanging by the pool or going to the lake!
As an educator, I use my student's strengths to foster a love for learning. My goal is to prepare them for the future. I believe in educating the whole child. I value nurturing social-emotional growth as well as academic achievement. I am so excited to have your child in my class. It is going to be a wonderful year in first grade!
