Jesse Hernandez


Hi everyone! I’m Mr. Hernandez. This is my 19th year in the classroom and my 13th here at Umoja International Academy. I absolutely love my colleagues here on campus and truly enjoy working with our students as they become young adults in our global community!
In my spare time, I enjoy golfing with friends (I recently knocked some great courses off of my bucket list: The Plantation Course at Kapalua and Torrey Pines South in San Diego). I also enjoy spending time with family. This summer, along with my two sons, we renovated my mom’s home; it was quite an undertaking, but the results are so satisfying! I also enjoy going to the movies (I’ve seen them all!) and cooking and barbequing (I’m starting to perfect my recipes on my Traeger!).
This is going to be a great year for all the Umoja Bees!
