In May 2000, I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Neuroscience from Texas Christian University.   Shortly after finishing my Bachelors I decided to do research . The University of North Texas Health Science Center allowed me to fulfill my desire to do research by allowing me to work with the Physiology department doing cardiac research. During my research opportunity I learned how to make flow probes and do Lowry protein assays. It was not long before I realized that I missed the school environment and I decided to go back to school for my Masters in Education at the University of Texas at Arlington.  I chose to obtain my Masters in Education because I had always loved the thrill of teaching others what I had learned.   In August 2002, I received my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction degree.  My initial certification was in Psychology 6-12 and I pursued my certification in Biology 6-12 shortly after.  Later I received my certification in Physical Science 8-12 and I plan to continue to work toward more certifications in the future.

 I have enjoyed teaching at South Hills High School for the past  two years.  Our Physics classes have grown tremendously and we are now hired an additional Physics teacher.  Hopefully the love for physics that I try to bring into my classroom, along with the challenge, will spur students on into a variety of fields; such as engineering, aerospace, semiconductors, interior design, business and much more. I believe in several philosophies in my classroom and they include the following: (1)  I believe that I learn as much from my students as they learn from me and therefore learning in the classroom goes both ways; (2)  If I am not having fun then my students are not having fun learning; (3) High expectations get higher results; and (4) Everyone has problems, so lets focus on the solution.  My policy is to keep an open door for both parents and students to approach me in regard to academic progress and I hope that we will have a very successful year.

I am married to a wonderful man, Pedro Guillermo Hernandez.  My husband, Pedro, is from Puerto Rico and he moved here  about 21 years ago to learn English. Pedro has been a big supporter of my research, teaching, and my long-term education goals.  We have now been married for over six and a half years and are still very much in love with one another.  As of yet, we have no children, however; we both would like to have children in the future.
