My
name is Rebecca Henry and I have been teaching 8th grade mathematics
since 1998, beginning at MNMS in the fall of 2000. During the 20082009
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.
Throughout
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
PreCalculus. Extracurricular activities I've enjoyed include working
with the Mt. Nittany drama club, Knowledge Masters, and coaching the
MathCounts team.
