Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Hernandez



I'm excited that after 13 years in the classroom I have the privilege of working along side our leadership team as Interim Academic Coach/Data Coordinator.

Catalina has been my home for many years. I began as a 5th grade teacher and then moved up to 6th grade.  After teaching all subjects I had the opportunity to master the art of teaching math as the 6th grade math teacher. I say “master” however the reality is that I learned along side my students each and everyday.

I have 4 boys, one who has recently graduated from Catalina, twins in 5th grade, and one more who will soon be in kindergarten! I whole-heartedly believe in the quality of education our Catalina teachers provide along with the fun and safe environment.  


I’m honored to continue to grow my educational career at the place that I call my second home with staff that I call family and students that I call my children.
