Mrs. Melanie Henderson
Hi! My name is Mrs. Melanie Henderson and I am SO excited to be part of the Aguirre Bulldog team! Most importantly, I am THRILLED to be your childs teacher. It's going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can't wait to see what this year has in store for us. I want to know all about you, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me.
I am from the Houston area and am the second of two children. I have an older sister and two younger sister inlaws I also have 3 brothers in law. I love my family very much. When I graduated from North Shore Senior High School in 2004, I went to Lamar University for one year then transfered to Sam Houston State University. Go Bearkats! While at Sam Houston I graduated with my bachelors degree in Mass Communications, Broadcast Journalism. I then moved back to houston after college and decided to teach. When I began teaching I decided to return to school to persue my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on English Language Learners.
I got my first job as a Science teacher in 2012 and fell in love with the profession. I am now going into my 6th year of teaching and I have always taught 6th graders. I love 6th graders because they are so eager to learn and bring excitement and enthusiasm like no other grade level. I have always felt that I can stay so young at heart because of the kids I teach!
I am married to a wonderful man Mr. Henderson and we have a beautiful chocolate lab/pit bull mix named Kenneth Cole. He is so much fun and keeps us on our toes. I am excited to be your Learning Labratory leader and for you to be part of this AMAZING investigation :) This year is going to be a spectacle to behold.
