Mrs. Yesenia Hernandez

Hola! I am so excited to be teaching Middle School Spanish! I started with Union Academy January 2022 and I am thrilled to be back! I have taught Spanish since 2017 and it is truly a passion of mine. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with my BA in Spanish along with a minor in Child and Family Development. I fell in love with teaching Spanish so much that I went back to get my MAT in foreign language education. I have a second grader at UA who is my entire world. I can't wait to see what this year unfolds for all of us! 


  • Please make sure students have a notebook for Spanish class. It is where they will keep their notes and any work I give them. It can be any notebook as long as it is designated for Spanish only. 

    They will also need crayons/markers since we will be doing a lot of colorful activities. These don't have to be just for Spanish, if they already have colors for other classes, they can use those as well.
