Ophelia Hernandez

“From 1985 to 1996 I was blessed and honored to be employed and work for Conchita Espinosa Academy. During this time I worked for the most incredible women and men I have ever known. Conchita Espinosa, Alicia Espinosa, Maribel Diaz, Rosita Segovia, Gloria Gaither, Ronn Daniels, Laura Luna, Edelemira Menéndez, and others not mentioned here. Each one taught me the meaning of how love and the Arts were so important in making a perfect balance in teaching and learning in school. I am a better person today because of what I learned in those 11 years.”
