Alicia E. Fernández
Alicia has been a part of the AFS community since 2007. Formerly she was a PreK teacher at NAEYC accredited program, summer college camp registrar, and purchasing/materials coordinator.
Alicia’s favorite part about working in the AFS community: “The joy and laughter I experience with colleagues, students and their families on a daily basis. And, the many opportunities for professional and personal growth alongside interesting, intelligent and talented colleagues and friends.”
What Alicia finds most meaningful in her profession: ‘Helping students discover their inner and outer beauty, self-worth and gifted strengths and then help them develop those strengths into regular habits of mind is extremely rewarding to me. Knowing that I have helped students move forward with skills they will use for the rest of their lives is gratifying and truly fulfilling.”
Fun fact about Alicia: “I have an intense fear (phobia) of walking (standing, running, jumping, etc.) over grates, street and storm drains.”
Alicia’s favorite spot on campus: “Meetinghouse”
