From the Principal

Getting to Know Mr. Hernandez

Mr. Hernandez

Hello Guin Foss Students and Parents,

Another year is upon us. 2018/2019 has the feel and making of an amazing year. Guin Foss Elementary continues its great reputation in the community and across our District. In my first year as principal, I have come to be a first hand witness of the work ethic and commitment it takes to attain such a reputation. I want you to know that I remain committed to and looking forward to working alongside each of you in continuing to make Guin Foss Elementary a great school for student learning and success.

My teaching experience has ranged from first, second, fifth and sixth grade, as well as being GATE certified and serving several years as a Teacher On Special Assignment. My leadership experience as a principal has been in both a TK-6th grade school setting, and now a TK-5th grade school setting. These settings allowed me to serve general education students as well as students in a a mild-moderate to moderate-severe Special Day Class students. My administrative experience at Utt Middle School reinforced the critical and foundational work accomplished at the elementary level.

On a personal note, my wife and I enjoy visiting Disneyland with our three children. My son is entering 8th grade, one of my daughters is entering her senior year in high school, and one of my daughter’s is entering her first year at the university level. For those parents new to Guin Foss Elementary, I look forward to meeting and getting to know you during this coming school year.
