Miss Javiera Hernandez

Hi! My name is Javiera Hernández and I am from Santiago, Chile. I have my degree in elementary school. I worked as an Elementary teacher during 4 years in Chile. I moved to North Carolina in August, 2019 to be a part of the Dual Language program. This is my second year at Highland Elementary School. I am a kindergarten and Second grade teacher for the Dual Language Program. I love teaching Spanish and sharing about my culture to students.  

This year I am working with Ms. Niezgoda, who is the English teacher from the Dual Language Program. Your child will have 50% of instruction in Spanish with me and 50% of instruction in English with Ms. Niezgoda. 

I am super excited to be with you this uncertain year but I'm sure we will have a great time together.
