Hello, and welcome to the 2011-2012 school year!
I am so excited to get off to a fresh start with you and your second grader. My name is Mrs. Henderson, and I will be your child's second grade teacher this year. This will be my fifth year teaching the second grade with The Westside Community School of the Arts. I believe that children learn best when associating learning with enjoyment. I like to incorporate music, singing, rhymes, peer work, and creative thought with my teaching.
In second grade, we like to have FUN while we learn!
On a personal note, I have been married to my husband, Koury for eight years. We have two amazing children: Joey, who is three, and Natalie, who is four months old. We are VERY family oriented, and love to spend our free time with both family and friends. I graduated from Ashland University in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education with a licensure in Pre K-3. I also attained my Reading Endorsement prior to graduating. I substitute taught in many neighboring communities before I was hired at WCSA.
Remember...it is so important that both teacher and parent work together to ensure scholastic success. We must work as a team to show our second graders that we value them and their education!
