Mrs. A. Fernandez
Here is a little information about me!
- About Me: My name is Amanda Fernandez.
- I LOVE the beach, cats, and anything caramel or cherry flavored. Some of my favorite foods are Bluebell Pralines and Cream ice cream, pecan pralines, pizza, cheeseburgers, and french fries.I live for boiled seafood.
- Teaching Experience: I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade during the span of my career, and now I am in my second year of 3rd grade ELA! I have been teaching at Hattie Watts for 7 years. I graduated from Nicholls State University in 2010, and have been teaching for a total of 9 years. I have worked all over the parish in many different schools, but Hattie Watts is definitely where my heart is. Teaching is my passion, and I love working with young children. I strive to provide hands-on learning experiences and opportunities whenever possible. I love technology and plan on using our student laptops to maximize instruction and student engagement this year.
- Strengths: I would say that my strengths are working with ADD/ADHD children and inspiring my students to learn by making them feel smart, confident, and loved. I am a fierce advocate for all of my students, and I will always fight for them to have all of the help, tools, and resources that they need to be successful. My goal is to maintain a classroom environment where students feel safe, confident, supported, and secure while they are learning. I believe that EVERY child deserves a success story!
