Welcome to Room 24!

Who is Mr. Hernandez?

I am very excited for my 3rd year as a full-time teacher at Lietz Elementary! I am no stranger to the community though as I have previously subbed within the district for a number of years (and even attended USD as a student myself!) I also previously taught summer school courses in Saratoga and worked as an instructional assistant and behavioral interventionist in Special Education for several years.

When not teaching, I love spending time with friends and family. We especially enjoy doing escape rooms, going to the movies, playing board games, and random hangouts. In my alone time I like to play retro video games, keep up on my fandoms, and get lost in music.

Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is very much a team effort grounded in relationships. Not only do I collaborate with the other 2nd grade teachers on a daily basis, but I also want to be fully available to others. (Yes, that includes you as well, parents!) Please feel free to contact me with any comments or concerns; I want to partner with you this year to ensure the absolute best for your student. You can find my contact info below.
