Welsh Elementary

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
-Benjamin Franklin

I graduated from McNeese State University in 1984.

I have been teaching for 14 years. I was a Pre-K teacher for three years and I am currently teaching first grade at Welsh Elementary where I have been in that position for the last 7 years. Years ago, I taught at Ward Elementary before deciding to stay home with my children. I made the decision to come back to the classroom because I love teaching. The best part about my job is teaching my students how to read.

I am married to Thomas Hensgens and we reside in Welsh. I have three children: Megan, Katherine, and Will. I will welcome my first grandbaby in April.
