About Mr. Hernandez
I was the first in my family to graduate from a four-year university. I earned a bachelor's degree in American Literature & Culture from UCLA in 1998. I started working at Cal High back in the year 2000, and I am currently the 10th & 11th grade English department chair. I'm married with three children, and I live in the city of Whittier.     
Things to remember:
  • When you are absent, it is your responsibility to check with me regarding makeup work.
  • Late work will receive 70% of your earned score. You have 10 school days to turn in late work worth that amount. After that, the work will be worth 50%.
  • Late work for AP classes is always worth 50%. 
  • There is no late penalty for excused absences; however, you only have 10 school days to submit your late work.
  • No assignments will be accepted after the Friday before finals week.
Important Update:
In the event of student absence, or a school closure, please check my daily agendas (click on above period links) first to find out about weekly assignments. Some assignments may be posted to Google Classroom which can be accessed by using the link below for ongoing coursework, assignments and activities.
