Sarah Hernandez

Lead Preschool Teacher

Hello! My name is Sarah Hernandez and I am one of the lead preschool teachers here at Carlsbad Country Day School. I was born and raised in San Diego and I absolutely love it here! I attended the University of California, Riverside where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and I just recently graduated from Grand Canyon University with my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. During college, I gained a lot of experience working with children as a tutor, volunteering at after school programs, and babysitting my nieces and nephew. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I wasn’t always sure what age group I wanted to teach. Originally, I was leaning towards elementary school, but after working with preschool aged children through a program called Soccer Shots, I realized I was passionate about this age group, and I haven’t looked back. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband, going to the beach, reading a good book, and visiting my family. I’m excited to be a part of the CCDS family and I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
