Ms Hensley Short Bio

I am delighted to have the privilege of teaching third grade at Casady this year!  This will begin my twenty first year as a professional educator and I look forward to a wonderful experience with each student.  It is my goal to not only teach your child Language Arts, but to also develop in them a love of knowledge that will encourage them to be lifelong learners.

My background includes a teaching degree in Elementary Education and an Endorsement in Language Arts from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.  In 1999, first year of teaching, I was awarded the Sallie Mae Entry Level Teacher of the Year Award for the State of Oklahoma and was nationally recognized in Washington, D.C.

I was selected, along with 24 other teachers from across the state to participate in the Educators Leadership Academy.  I have also been a Great Expectations instructor, and obtained my national Board of Teaching Certificate as a Middle Childhood Generalist.  I have taught elementary school at Quail Creek Elementary in Oklahoma City and also in the Deer Creek School System at Rose Union Elementary, prior to coming to Casady.

Things I enjoy include reading, watching sports, playing tennis, eating out as often as possible, and, of course, shopping.  I also enjoy spending time with my:  family, friends, and my Yorkshire Terrier Bentley.
