Ms. Z. Hernandez

I am excited to be joining the FSUS faculty this year!

My professional career includes fifteen years of combined experience as an English teacher, club sponsor, and school test administrator in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. I taught all high school grade levels and courses ranging from English I to AP English Literature. I also had the pleasure of teaching alongside some of my former teachers for nine years at the high school where I graduated.

In addition to teaching, I served for three years at the Florida Department of Education as the policy specialist monitoring state laws and rules relating to teacher certification.

Some of my professional interests are teaching poetry with music, studying all things British literature, and helping students with the college process.

I enjoy traveling with my fiancé, practicing yoga, listening to music, and spending time with my pug.
