Meet Ms. Henninger
First grade is the grade for me! I have been teaching first grade for 16 years and this is my third year teaching at Roose! I knew I wanted to be a teacher since third grade. I was fortunate to have a teacher who believed in her students and made learning fun. Maya Angelou once stated, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I want to instill the feeling of confidence in my first graders because I and believe in them!
I believe effective teaching begins with fostering positive relationships and building a strong sense of family, within the classroom. By creating a safe, fun, learning environment, students become confident to take risks, learn from their mistakes, and from each other.
I graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education from Saginaw Valley State University. I have two adult daughters whom I have enjoyed many educational experiences with over the years.
Parents have an important role in a child’s education. Open lines of communication between parents, students and teachers are vital in promoting an educational climate that is conducive to learning. Together, we can make this the best school year ever!
