Mr. Miguel Fernandez
Welcome to Miguel Fernandez's Earth science and Biology teacher webpage! (I yelled this in my head) I have been teaching for going on 16 years now. I started my teaching carrier in Tohatchi, in the Navajo nation at the base of the Lukachukai montain range (chief Manuelito's strong-hold, look him up, he was an amazing and inspirational man). After teaching in Tohatchi for four years while working on my masters degree in education at WNMU, I moved back to Flagstaff, AZ where I started working part-time at the Back-on track program at the local detetion center for teens, I was also working for a land-use lawyer at the time doing research for him. Eventually a was given and opportunity to at project New-Start (now Summit High) and worked there as the Science, Algebra, P.E. and Gardening teacher at varouis times through out my stay there. Recently I just got back from teaching abroad in Santa Cruz, Bolivia for two years. I loved my time traveling and working in South America but I am glad to be back and I look forward to meeting all of you!
4th Quarter Assignments and Grading Policy
Hello from the Fernandez family, I hope that all of you are doing well. The new grading policy is as follows; your current 3rd quarter grades will stand as is, if you choose do nothing from here on out. If you would like to improve your grade/s for the year than you may do the online assignments (google classroom) that I will offer each week starting Monday the 6th. The assignments from here on out will be extra-credit that can improve your current grades. I am still unclear on the amount of extra credit that will be assigned per lesson? When I have decided the amount of extra-credit I will post this on my webpage as well as on google classroom.
I will be entering late work and reviewing assignments completed before we left for springbreak over for the rest of the current week 4/1/20-4/3/20. Your grade may change based on late assignments etc.
