June 2020 Student Spotlight – Bertha Fernandez

I’m from San Angelo, Texas.  I became a teacher in 2001 and I absolutely loved it.  My favorite time of the day to spend time with my students is in the morning after meet and greet and breakfast when the teaching begins.  Seeing their faces light up as we are learning together just brightens up my day!!

My favorite activity is teaching sign language and Spanish.  When the students respond back with the correct response or sign it is very rewarding.  What I enjoy the most about teaching is watching my students progress and actually learn.

In my free time, I look up new ways and new things to teach my students to keep it exciting for them and myself.  I’m always looking for new things to study especially in education.  My future is looking good.  I’m in the process of opening up my very own preschool.

The program that I participated in with ChildCare Education Institute was the Texas Child Care Administration & Business Practices Certificate 100 clock hours and a few courses that will help during the COVID-19 pandemic.  I will always look to CCEI courses to further my education and for meeting annual state professional development requirements.  I will definitely continue my education with CCEI and I absolutely recommend CCEI!  It has been an amazing learning experience for me!
