name is Rebecca Henry and I have been teaching 8th grade mathematics
since 1998, beginning at MNMS in the fall of 2000. During the 2008-2009
school year, I spent time with the US Peace Corps in Tanzania studying
Swahili and the Tanzanian education system. I learned a lot about
cultures, including our own, and the flaws, frustrations, and positive
aspects of educational systems worldwide.
I am a Penn State graduate and was a member of the Blue Band while in college. I did not play an instrument in the Blue Band, as violin is a bit difficult with which to march! Instead, I twirled a flag as a member of the colorguard and enjoyed many fabulous experiences with that group.
my years at MNMS I have had the opportunity to work with students in
and outside of the classroom. On team, I have taught Math 8, Advanced
Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra and Geometry 8. I've also
worked with former students tutoring Geometry, Algebra 2, and
Pre-Calculus. Extracurricular activities I've enjoyed include working
with the Mt. Nittany drama club, Knowledge Masters, and coaching the
