Welcome to Highland!
My name is Cheryl Henderson and this is my sixth year at Highland! In case you are new to Highland, I am married and have two children. My son Josh is 25. He currently serves in the military and is married. So, I have a daughter-in-law and two grand-dogs. My daughter Sarah is 20 and is beginning her senior year in college! So, to help keep me busy at home we have two babies, Daisy a yorkie and Echo a jack russell mix. They keep us on our toes!
In regard to Highland we have a wonderful Exceptional Children's team! I have over 12 years of experience working with exceptional children. It is my belief that learning is an interactive and social process and that the most effective learning happens when students are working in a positive, collaborative, respectful learning environment. I also believe that a key ingredient to learning is to remember that children are always growing and that it is just as important to celebrate the small successes along with the big ones.
I am in the same classroom as last year, A42. This room is located on the left just before the doors that exit to the playground. Please feel free to call or email any time. I will try to return your call or email before I leave for the day or at least within 24 hours. I am excited to see what this school year brings as we work together to help your children be successful at Highland!
