Lion Face.png My name is Connie Hernandez. I welcome you and your child to my class. I have been at Park Elementary for 14 years; however I have been teaching for thirty years. Wow, time flies when you are having FUN!!!!

Most of those years have been teaching kindergarten. Every year brings lots of joy and excitement for me. This is not a job for me, I LOVE what I do!
  
I am a native El Pasoan and product of the El Paso Independent School District. I am a proud graduate of University of Texas at El Paso - Go Miners! I graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education with a major in Earth Science. I did my student teaching working with fourth graders, teaching Science. The funny thing is when I was called in for a job interview, the principal stated he wanted me to teach Kindergarten!!! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think of working the "little ones"! This meant going back to school for an additional two more years for a Kindergarten Endorsement and teaching at the same time.                                           
I did it and I loved every minute of it!             

I firmly believe in parental support. As a parent, you are your child's first teacher! You play a very important role in our classroom.  I look forward to getting to know you and especially your child. I am here for you! Please feel free to come talk to me or to call me. The school phone number is 236-5975. If you prefer to email me @ chernan1@episd.org  My conference period is from 1:45 - 2:30 p.m..

  Kindergarten is all about having FUN and WORKING TOGETHER!!
