I’m looking forward the 2019/2020 school year. This is my fourth year teaching 6th grade at Buljan Middle School and my sixth year working in RCSD. Previously, I taught 5th grade at Fiddyment Farm Elementary School. In addition, I worked in San Juan Unified School District teaching 1st, 2nd and 5th grades. I have my multiple subject teaching credential and a master’s degree in school counseling. It is my pleasure teaching middle school age students.

Ken Fernandes
6th Math/Science Teacher

This will be my twelfth year proudly teaching as a Buljan Bulldog. I tremendously enjoy helping students to reach their full academic, personal, and social potentials while maintaining engaging and collaborative working environments. My mission as an educator is to guide my students to develop and cultivate growth mindsets in regard to their own learning, critical thinking, and goal setting. I have 180 days to positively influence students’ abilities to navigate the multi-tasking demands of the world around them, and I take every day very seriously.
