Why did you select Henderson as a place to work?
I like the smaller size and the stronger connection with students. Having smaller classes allows me to feel like I am meeting the needs of each of my students.
What do you enjoy most about Henderson? The sense of community. Everyone seems to know and remember everyone else like a family!
What is your main goal for this year? Help students achieve their Language Arts goals and maybe learn to love reading as much as I do!
Who was your all time favorite teacher and why?
Mr. White English/Social Studies teacher from high school. Just made class enjoyable but he was also hard and you knew you had learned something.
Can you share three things on your bucket list?
Spend an extended amount of time traveling around Europe.
Drive down both coasts of the US (stopping at famous landmarks).
Vacation in Figi in one of those little huts that sit atop the water.
Eileen is a kind teacher who she loves teaching us. Introducing myself to her was no big deal. You can just walk up to her and ask for anything you need.... help, advice etc.
She sounds passionate about teaching us all English. I do not know her as a teacher too much yet, but I can already tell that she will be able to help a lot of students this year.
