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.
"The child is in me still and sometimes not so still."
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.
