Mrs. Lisa Hernandez
Mrs. Hernandez was born outside of Houston, but grew up in Allen, Texas. She has lived all over the Metroplex, but currently resides in Carrollton. Shortly after graduating high school, she completed two newspaper internships, and planned to study journalism and Spanish at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton, Texas. Her goal was to become a journalist for National Geographic.
The Spanish courses at UNT opened up a whole new world to her, and she began taking more classes in earnest. Ultimately, Mrs. Hernandez earned her B.A. (Spanish) and M.A. (Spanish History, Linguistics, & Literature) from UNT. She did graduate work in Education at Texas A&M University-Commerce, and completed her Catholic School Leadership Certificate through Creighton University. She taught at Bishop Lynch High School in East Dallas and Cistercian Preparatory School in Irving prior to coming to St. Cecilia Catholic School. She has worked in education for 14 years.
Mrs. Hernandez looks forward to working with the St. Cecilia community in order to promote academic excellence, the arts, superior student and family support, and wellness of body, mind, and soul. She also looks forward to supporting faculty and staff in their own pursuits, both in and outside of the classroom. She is fully committed to the mission of Catholic schools, believing they offer both a superior environment for spiritual growth and moral development, as well as heightened acceptance of individual differences.
Mrs. Hernandez has been married for 13 years and has two daughters. In her free time, she tackles home repairs, and enjoys painting, sewing, and other crafts. She also tries to read a mix of educational books and fiction novels (in English and in Spanish) each year. Lastly, she currently serves as a lector at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church.
