My name is José M. Hernandez, in September 1999, I emigrated to the united states to the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I started working in different magazines and plastic factories. In September of 2003, I married María Ester Aguilera and we have 3 boys of 18,16, and 13 years old.
In January 2012, my wife’s dream of having our own business related to child care came true, which she named as “Green Planet Day care”. After so many years of effort from my wife.
So I started taking the first classes for early age care so we could work together and for this I needed to take certain basic classes that included: CPR, abuse and neglect, shaken baby syndrome, crib death.
I also took credentials for infants and toddlers and administration at MATC. Finally, in 2021 I graduated with an associate degree in early childhood education at MATC. I think that the more I prepare myself academically, the better the quality of child care will be.
What inspired me to study the associate in early education was to see my wife who has a gift for teaching the children in her care and how grateful the parents are with her.
Then I got involved little by little in the day care and began to prepare myself to be more professional in this field. My children were my other reason to finish my studies and be an example despite my age, it is never too late to learn and of course “yes you can” despite the obstacles, always stay focused on what you want and you will succeed, even if you have not yet mastered the language.
I thank god and this country that have given me so much and I thank each of the people who were by my side, especially my wife and my children.
