    Welcome to Mrs. Henderson's 6th Grade Science Class!
     This will be a fun filled year full of mind stretching activities and topics. I am a very hands on type of teacher that makes every effort for learning to come alive in each students eyes.
    About Me:
    I was born in Rabun County, Georgia and attended Rabun County High School. Growing up I was quite the sports fanatic. I played softball, basketball, and soccer. After high school, I continued my education on a soccer scholarship to Truett McConnell and Clayton State where I received my degree in middle grades education. Prior to working at Ola Middle School, I was the women's goalkeeping coach at Woodward Academy for 4 years and JV softball coach for 2 years. I currently coach high school softball and 8th grade girls basketball here at Ola. When I'm not coaching I enjoy cooking, spending time with my husband and our families, playing with my miniature schnauzer (Max), arts and crafts, working out, playing on church league or coed softball leagues, and traveling.
