Ms. Erika Hernandez
Hello, my name is Erika Hernandez. I was born in Cuernavaca, Morelos in Mexico. I am u-46 alumni. Before becoming a teacher in the district, I was an AVID tutor. This is my 4th year teaching third grade at Coleman and I have taught Kindergarten as well! I have a dog named Mia. I have my BA Degree in Elementary Education from Aurora University with certifications in ESL, Bilingual Education, and Middle School. I also have a MA Degree in Reading Specialist from Olivet Nazarene University. Three things I believe are all children have the right to learn, successful learning happens when the teacher and parents work together through meaningful communication, and children should take responsibility and ownership for their learning, with support.
