I am Mr. Damian Fernandez and I am excited to start my second full year as a teacher here at HSA. I was hired in January 2017 and served as the IM 2 teacher. This year I will continue teaching IM 2. I received a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics Education at California State University Dominguez Hills. I believe in order to fully understand mathematics; students must become critical thinkers and be actively engaged in the content. It is my goal this year have all students in my class become better critical thinkers and view mathematics in a different perspective than on the first day they walk into my class. Hope to have an excellent and exciting year this year.
