Hello, I am John Hernandez, I’m from San Antonio and am a senior. I graduated high school from Holmes Business Careers and attended Northwest Vista College before I transferred to St. Mary’s in 2016. I used to be a Criminal Justice major before my friends helped me realize that it wasn’t what I wanted to do. History had been an interest of mine since I was young, and I had decided that I would like to teach it. I think that this class will better help me teach my students if I have a better understanding of how to explain history, especially local history, to them. I do my best when my teachers give me quick and detailed feedback, I had one professor who would give feedback within a few days and would give a detailed outline of what I did well and what I could improve on before the next assignment was due. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can this semester from this class.
I am a History major with the Teachers Certification, I also have an Associates in Criminal Justice and do plan to finish a Bachelors as well as continuing my education with plans to study Anthropology to eventually get a PhD. in both Anthropology and History. I am also a salesman and businessman, with plans to open up my first fully successful business in late Spring.
