Hello EXCEL Family! Welcome to Middle School Social Studies!!

Hello! I am Mrs. Henry and I teach 6th and 7th grade World History and 8th grade Georgia Studies. I absolutely love everything about history and am very passionate about my students and my content. I truly enjoy bringing history to life! As a military child, I moved around all my life prior to settling down in Georgia. My roots are from Puerto Rico but I spent a good part of my childhood between Northern Virginia and New York. I served in the U.S. Army for 13 years. I truly enjoyed serving my country and living in other countries. It really helped to broaden my worldview and I believe the experiences I gained helps me in the classroom, connect with my students and bring a bit of my world and what I have seen, to them.  I grew up a Marine Corps kid, so serving my country was something I’d always known I wanted to do. As much as I loved serving our great country, I have fully fallen in love with teaching and after two combat tours I decided to take off my boots and enter the institution of education. 

 Aside from teaching I also coach soccer, softball and basketball. They are three sports that I loved playing growing up and continue to play. I am married to a wonderful Soldier who is still actively serving today, and we have four children who keep us busy with their sports and activities outside of school. We love being outdoors, hiking and playing sports. We live on a ranch with two giant, slobbery, lovable Cane Corso Mastiffs who we totally adore, named Sadie and Luna and a cattle herd mix named Little Foot. We have horses, ducks, chickens and of course two barn cats. So it is quite busy on the ranch!

There really is not a dull moment at home and you will learn quickly that my classroom is just as exciting! I have no doubts that this year is going to be Exceptional and I can’t wait to help mold our scholars and watch them grow into the best versions of themselves and become life long learners!
