About the Director

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.

Thank You,

Sheenae Hernandez-Garcia
