Amy Henderson: Upper School Science Teacher
What motivated and inspired you to teach? I used to make my sister play school with me for hours. I love sharing knowledge, exploring, and seeing faces light up. I like to make students think and feel the reward of figuring things out.
What makes you excited to come to school every day? I love relating science to real life and giving students confidence in science subjects. The students and faculty I work with make me excited to come to ESD every day. I love the special community and advisory we have to make connections with students at ESD.
What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom? Anyone can do anything they put their mind to. Explore and search for answers and reasons - don't let curiosity fade.
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself! I enjoy teaching piano, reading, spending time with my family, cooking, and traveling outside of school. I have lived in Dallas my whole life - same with my husband, whom I met in seventh grade. We are SMU fans.
What is your favorite book and why? I love Wonder. I just reread it with my daughter this summer. Live your dreams and be yourself no matter what people say or do to you.
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be? I would say Mary (Jesus' Mother), Einstein, and my great great grandmother.
