About Ms. Fernandez

I'm a preservice English teacher in my senior year at Seton Hall University.

These are a few of my favorite things...


Sammy and Squirrel, my two cats

I absolutely love animals, and my favorite animals are cats! I have two cats that my family adopted, Samantha (we call her Sammy or Sam) and Squirrel. I used to volunteer at the Jersey Animal Coalition in South Orange before it closed, and I'm looking to start volunteering again at a different shelter.


Reading is my favorite hobby! Whenever I go into a bookstore or a library, I feel like I'm a kid in a candy store. For me, there's nothing better than curling up with a hot cup of tea and a good book. One of the reasons that I want to become an English teacher is to share my love of reading with my students. I believe that everyone who hates reading hasn't found the right book yet!


Music is another favorite hobby of mine. I've been playing the flute since I was nine years old. I was a member of my high school's marching and concert band, and I'm currently a member of the Seton Hall Pep Band.

Check out this video of my senior year marching band show, Hungarian Fantasies!

I also love listening to music. My all time favorite band is The Beatles, but I have a pretty wide range of music that I listen to. Lately I've been obsessed with mashups- here's one of my favorites:

These are just some of the many things that I love (besides teaching, of course!).
