Miss Rachel Henry
I am so excited to be starting my first year as a teacher at Larkspur Elementary in Pre-K! My name is Rachel Henry, and I grew up in Navarre, Florida, just a few miles from the beach. As the daughter of an Air Force Master Sergeant, I have lived in several states, including New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, and now, Texas. In my spare time, I volunteer at my local church and take martial arts classes - which I hopes will one day become another avenue to teach children life skills.
I received my bachelor's degree in the Art of Education with an ESL Endorsement at the University of Northern Colorado. There I joined two scholarship programs, where I dedicated my time to studying best practices for teaching English Language Learners. When I moved to Texas with my degree and certification in hand, I began tutoring students of all academic levels from Pre-K to High school seniors. I then started working in public and charter schools first as a substitute teacher, then as a Special Programs Specialist, a Special Education Paraprofessional, and last year, a 4th grade Co-Teacher.
While I have no children of my own, my students are always my pride and joy. This includes the scholarly Michael and Joseph, a college freshman and a high school junior who I am so proud to call my brothers. At home I have two little feather babies and a dog who keep me on my toes. The six of us make my parents' house like a zoo when we are all together, but it's a controlled chaos zoo full of love and fun (especially on family movie nights). I'd love to share that zoo-like love with my students as I usher them into their first year of school.
