My name is Michael Fernandez. I currently teach the Honors Government Block and the traditional Government Block at Battle High School. I am a graduate of the University of Missouri and have been teaching in the Columbia Public School District since 2008. I spent five years at Oakland Junior High teaching the Government Link course. Prior to my teaching career, I spent time in the United States Air Force and was a Federal Officer with U.S. Customs. In addition to teaching at Battle, I have the privilege of coaching the Girls Junior Varsity Basketball Team again for the 2014-2015 season! GO SPARTANS!
