Biography

 Welcome!

I'm Mrs. Hernandez and I've been teaching at Indian Hill Elementary for the last nine years! This is my second year as a fifth grade teacher, but have experience in both third and first grade.  I'm from Bellevue and graduated from Bellevue West. I then attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha for my degree in Education. After working for a few years, I went back to school to earn my ESL/ELL endorsement from Concordia University.

 

I believe every student can learn and grow with a positive learning environment. We each learn differently and I do my best to get to know each student and the best strategies to help that student grow. We are a diverse classroom and that only makes us stronger! I love getting to know my students and their families, so feel free to contact me with any questiosn you might have!
