Brenda Fernandez, Principal

Ms. Fernandez has worked for the District for 25 years. She has been an elementary school teacher, Categorical Coordinator, Bilingual Coordinator, Assistant Principal (Elementary Instructional Specialist) and Principal in LAUSD.  She has also worked as a teacher trainer for BTSA, UTLA, and the District Intern Program in LAUSD. Ms. Fernandez is happy to be back at Sharp as Principal. The last time Ms. Fernandez worked at Sharp Elementary she was the Assistant Principal Elementary School Specialist.

Ms. Fernandez was born in East Los Angeles to immigrant parents. Ms. Fernandez entered elementary school only speaking Spanish.  By today’s standards, she would have been an English Language Learner! She struggled to learn English and keep up with her school work since she did not have anyone at home to help her with her school work. The eldest of four children, she learned English and focused on her studies while assisting her younger siblings in school. She always knew she would work with children and foster the same educational and career goals in them.

Ms. Fernandez is passionate about making sure every child has the opportunity to succeed in school and attain the goals they set for themselves. She believes that no matter what obstacles we face we can overcome them and succeed.  She knows and reminds all that this is only possible if we work hard, are persistent, and learn the skills we need to be lifelong learners and productive members of our society.
