    My name is Amy Hernandez, and I'm a second grade teacher at South Hi Mount Elementary School. This is my 22nd year of teaching and my sixth year at South Hi Mount. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and my Master of Arts degree in Education in my hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. My family has lived in Fort Worth for 13 years. I enjoy traveling with my husband and two sons.

    Hello, my name is Azucena Jimenez, this is my first year at South Hi Mount. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a bachelor's in Bilingual Education. My goal is to ignite in each student the love for learning, acquire knowledge, and develop life-long learning skills. Outside of school, I love spending time with my family, reading, watching movies and cooking. I am excited to be part of the South Hi Mount family, and I am looking forward to a great school year!
