Ms. Hernandez

 My name is Alejandra S. Hernandez and I am proud to say I have been working here at Washington Elementary for 8 yrs.  Washington is located in my favorite community (Little Italy).  I am thrilled to work in an amazing community where the teachers, parents, and community members all put the children first. I also live in the community and wouldn’t have it any other way. Little Italy is a growing community and perfect for out of classroom learning experiences for our students.   

Some of the exciting learning experiences our class takes advantage include: The Little Italy Fire Station, Balboa Park, The Children’s Museum, The Civic Theater  ( Classics for Kids), The San Diego Zoo, and the new Downtown Public Library. My passion is being around students and making powerful positive differences in their life.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology in 1998 from San Diego State University.  In 2001 I received my teaching credential and Masters in Education from National University. This year I became Gate Certified by San Diego State University.
