My name is Mrs. Fernandez and I am your 8th grade Science and Physical Science teacher. I have been teaching over 15 years and this is my 2nd year at Somerset Silver Palms. I am the cheerleading coach, 9th grade sponsor and Environmental Club sponsor. I will be starting a Science National Honors Society (SNHS) chapter and am excited on growing the Science program at our school. My favorite part about teaching at SASP are the students and their enthusiasm. Everyone here is so spirited and always happy to come to such a great place to learn!
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I attended Florida International University. My pride and joy are my three children, 1 daughter and 2 sons. Recently my daughter graduated from UF and my eldest son is following in his sisters footsteps. He recently moved to Gainesville where he started college. My youngest child is currently a 9th grader, too.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. We like to go boating together and traveling. My passion is running and 2 years ago, I completed a full marathon. This is one of my proudest accomplishments. I also like the outdoors, whether it’s at the beach or a park. I truly love my city and the amazing year round weather we have.
I look forward to getting to know all my students and am excited for this coming, 2014-2015, school year.
