• Welcome!

    Greetings AIM Families!

    My name is Jillian Hernandez, and I am so thrilled to be your child's AIM teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. 

    It's going to be a year unlike any other!

    I am proud to be an Allen native-- I even graduated from Allen High School before attending the University of North Texas.  Currently, I am working on my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.

    This will be my tenth year working for Allen ISD, and I know it's going to be a great one.  I have taught second and third grades with a focus on gifted learners, third grade gifted and talented at the GATE Academy, and was previously the AIM teacher at Marion Elementary before taking last year "off" to begin a new journey with my first son, Rhys.

    Rhys, my husband Marc, and I alive in Allen with our crazy Manx cat, Milo, and our hound/shepherd mix, Domino.  When I'm not at school, I spend most of my time with Rhys, but I also enjoy cooking (from scratch!), gardening, crafting, and painting.  Chances are, I'll probably run into one or two of you at my favorite stores Hobby Lobby or Target!

    I love being in Allen, and I definitely understand, first hand, the high standards and goals of the school district and advanced academics.  I strive to do my best each and every day, and I expect my students to do the same.

    I am very excited for this school year!  Please feel free to contact me at any time, for any matter, large or small!
