Welcome to Ms. Henry's Wiki al_gourds_close_up.jpg A little about me... Teaching is my passion. It's one of the few things in life I feel comfortable saying is a talent. I love my job. I love education. Most importantly, I love working with kids. I have been teaching for 12 years, and this is my eighth year at Powell Middle School. Outside of school, life is quite busy. I have a five year old daughter, Annalyse. We enjoy biking, walking, hiking, reading, and anything where we get to sing, dance and laugh. Her funny moments often work their way into my teaching, and the kids seem to love that. We also have a GIANT Golden Retriever named Rosco. He is 100 pounds of love. He gets a lot of attention, bones and walks from Annalyse and me.

Fun Facts About Ms. Henry...

Travel - I have traveled extensively in the United States, as well as to 12 countries around the world. My favorite place to visit in the States is San Francisco and my favorite country I have travelled to is Peru. In January of 2010 I traveled to Egypt. It was my dream trip and completely astounding!
Adventure - I'm usually willing to try most anything once. I rock climbed for 12 years. I've been skydiving twice. I have even eaten guinea pig as a delicacy in Peru.
Passions - Outside of teaching I have several things that keep me ticking. One of my favorite things to do is to catch a live band. It is unusual for me not to see live music at least 2-3 times a month, and often more! A second passion of mine is the environment. I find myself advocating for it regularly. And of course, I love to spend time with my family and friends. I'm lucky to have surrounded myself with the most amazing people in the world!
Music - My favorite musicians include: The Gourds, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Jack Johnson, John Butler Trio, The Avett Brothers, James Blunt, and many, many more!
