Hello, my name is Mike Hernandez, and I am delighted to join the BISH team for the upcoming school year.
I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada, but I also have American citizenship. (Thanks, Mom and Dad.) I have traveled to a handful of places in the United States, but moving to the US will be a new and exciting experience for me.
I have been teaching internationally for several years. For the past three years, I have been teaching in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Before my time in Brazil, I taught for five years in Seoul, South Korea. Living abroad, I have been able to explore fantastic places. I have traveled throughout Asia and South America, and I have seen wonderful sights and experienced incredible cultures.
The theater has always been a passion of mine and I love music as well. I am also quite the movie buff. I attend Pilates and functional fitness classes, and I enjoy running. For example, I recently completed a half marathon in beautiful Rio de Janeiro.
I am looking forward to meeting and working with the BISH faculty and students and becoming a member of the community.
