Mrs. Hernandez

Hello everyone!


My name is Mrs. Hernandez, and I will be teaching third grade at Countryside this year! This is my third year teaching and second year at Countryside Elementary. I am so proud to be part of this amazing community!


A little bit about me: I was born in Salem, OR, but moved to State College, PA when I was 12. My family and I have called State College home for the last twelve years! I graduated from Clarion University in May of 2020, and taught in Frederick County before moving to the Loudoun Area last year! My husband and I recently celebrated our first anniversary, and we are proud parents to a very fluffy cat and very energetic dog! In my free time, I enjoy a good book, a good movie, or a good hike!


I believe that all students are learners, and that each individual personality is a valuable part of our classroom community. I believe all my learners to have great potential, and look forward to helping them reach their goals over the course of the year. I believe in the value of relationships as an integral part of our classroom community, and eagerly engage in strategies to help students build relationships with each other, and with me. I practice compassion with each child and always want to make sure students know they are in a safe space inside my classroom. I encourage students to develop executive functioning skills such as organization, time management, and self regulation, but recognize that they need guidance along that path.


My email is Please feel free to reach out at any time with any questions or concerns! I look forward to getting to know everyone at Back to School Night, Open House, and over the coming year!
