Rebecca Hernandez is a 1st grade ELA-S teacher. This is her seventh year of teaching and is so glad to be back at Maxwell this year! She is originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa and received her Bachelor's degree from Wartburg College. In May 2013, she graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver with her Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading and Writing. Her favorite part of the job is watching her students grow, especially in an ELA-S classroom where they are learning both languages. In her spare time, Mrs. Hernandez likes to spend time with her family, read, and go for walks.
