Mandy Hernandez - Director/Teacher

Colleen Quickel - Teacher

From a young age, I knew I wanted to be an Educator.  I enjoyed learning and spreading my enthusiasm for education to children was a priority. I graduated from California Polytechnic State University,  San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Child Development.  For two decades,  I taught and worked with Elementary students in Kindergarten and First Grade in the private/public sector in Northern and Central California. I hold certifications in Reading Endorsement and Child Development Site Supervisor Permit. I changed direction in midlife, and worked as a Sales Director for an Educational Company for six years.While this was fulfilling I felt the need to get back to the classroom. I enjoy every aspect of teaching this age group and have realized this past year and a half at Fresno Jewish Day School that the children can teach me as much as I teach them. This is one of my favorite things about teaching preschool. ​
