My name is Amada Hernandez. I have been a teacher for 24 years; 20 here at Newman as the PreKinder teacher. I graduated from UTEP in 1990 with a Bachelors of Science in Education. I have endorsements in Bilingual Education and Early Childhood Education.
Congratulations! We have made it past 100 days in school. From now on its all downhill. I along with parents need to make sure that your child is ready for Kindergarten. Please read to your child every night for at least 15 minutes. Help them learn their letters and sounds, counting, and recognizing the numerals 0 to 9. By working together we can ensure that your child is ready for the next level.
If you have any questions or need ideas in helping your child, please don't hesitate to call to make an appointment to talk. The school number is 236-5825. My conference time is 11:00-11:35 a.m.
