Hello my name is Sheenae Hernandez-Garcia and I am the Director of First Protestant
School. I am a New Braunfels native and graduated from New Braunfels High School
in 2001. My 14 years of experience in the childcare education field begun back in
2001, as a toddler co-teacher, right here at First Protestant School. Since that
time, I have worked with children of all ages. I spent several years as a co-teacher,
lead teacher, assistant director, and now director. My role as the director begun
back in January 2009.
I currently hold a Director’s Certification from the Texas
Department of Family Protective Services and have completed over 450 hours of child
development training throughout my career.
On a personal note, I became a wife to
my middle school sweet heart, and now loving husband, Michael back in November 2009.
In August 2014, Michael and I welcomed our first son Gannon into our lives. Becoming
his mom has given me a whole new outlook on life and has truly shown me what it
feels like to be blessed. Before becoming a mommy myself, my older brother blessed
our family with 2 beautiful girls, Cailin & Harper. Being their aunt definitely
prepared me for becoming a mom.
My interest, beyond early childhood education, include
spending time with friends and family, playing and watching volleyball, shopping,
competing in BBQ cook offs, and eating great food. But truly, most of my spare time
is spent just enjoying time with my husband and son.
My journey here at FPS may
have begun in 2001, but for as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to care
for children. This career choice is a choice that I would chose over and over again
if given the opportunity. Becoming the Director of FPS was not only a major accomplishment
for my career but it was the day God blessed me with my dream job. It is my hopes
to not have only started my childcare education career here at FPS, but I would
love to retire here as well.
To all of my past, present, and future families- Thank
you for allowing me to be a part of your lives and caring for your children.
