We are excited to welcome Amanda Whitlock to 1st grade at OGES.
Hello, Eagles! I am Mrs. Hernandez, and I’m excited to join you as a 5th grade ELA and Social Studies teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be my 6th year teaching in Cherokee County. I have experience in ESOL, EIP, and 5th grade and have worked at Hasty Fine Arts Academy and Clark Creek STEM Academy.
I believe that creating a comfortable classroom community is the key to a successful year. The first thing we learn is that “everyone deserves respect,” and this sets the tone for all of our interactions moving forward.
I have a son who is almost 3 and a daughter who is almost 1. My son will hopefully join us at OGES for preschool in 2021. We have two dogs (Beau & Arrow) and a betta fish named Carmen.
I look forward to reading, writing, and growing together this school year. Together we are Oak Grove STRONG!
