My name is Laura Hernandez and I am so excited to be one of your teachers this year! We will be using the dyad model, which means you will have two teachers: one for ELA/Social Studies and another for Math/Science. I will be your Math and Science teacher!
This is my ninth year teaching upper elementary, but only my third year here in beautiful Arizona. Previously I taught 5th grade in an International Baccalaureate World school in Austin, Texas!
I love tennis, food, travel and exploring with my two children. I lived over a decade "off the grid" in central Mexico, which might explain my love for conservation and sustainability.
I have high expectations for my students and expect everyone to share, contribute and grow as a young scholar. Bring your curiosity, it will be a great year in 4th grade!
