I'd like to thank Ms. Blay for creating a teacher sign off slip for students going on the field trip last week. It was easy for us teachers to catch each student about make up work and it was a great lesson in ownership and organizational skills for the students!

- Timothy Peck


Kudos to Cherri Urban for doing such an amazing job on our Thankful board and the library's Twitter account! Check it out @HernandezMSLib

- Wendy Tucker


A HUGE thanks to Allison Lee, Cailtin La, and Leo Rodriguez for being an awesome team to work with! You are all wonderful educators and I am so blessed to work with each of you!

1. Mariah Faust is probably superwoman in disguise. She teaches 3 different preps, she teaches one inclusion class with our FAC students and differentiates like a boss!, she is our Academic UIL co-coordinator, she was the site manager for our OAP Festival, she has spent countless hours of her personal time (and lots of money) to get certifications to help our students , She also directed a play with students who were only halfway committed to it being a success and ROCKED it! To add to all this, she is an excellent teacher and collaborator and she genuinely cares about people. Mariah, you're my hero.

2. Sarah Martinez is a transcendent angel. There are no words to describe her caring and support. She sees a need and fills it, she gets things done, and she is an AMAAAAAAAAAAZING teacher! We are not worthy of your divine grace.

3. Mrs. Reininger never leaves this school. She is constantly working and supporting everyone and everything. Thank you for being such a kind and caring human being!
