Welcome to the PEECH Preschool Program family. My name is Dana Hernandez and I am the PEECH Preschool Program Director. I have been an educator for 28 years. I graduated from Georgia Southwestern State University with my Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree in Special Education. I began my teaching career as a preschool special education teacher for the PEECH Program. After many years of teaching different grade levels, I can truly say that preschool special education holds a special place in my heart.

At the PEECH Program, we feel all out students are capable of learning and growing academically, socially, and independently. Our well trained faculty provides a strong start and academic preparation for Kindergarten. All of our faculty and staff are trained to meet the educational, as well as the social and emotional needs of each student. We also value our parents and want to work with them to help their child be the best they can be. Working together, we can help every child succeed.
