Mrs. Pamela Henderson
I am excited to begin my fourth year as a teacher here at Stover Middle! I earned a degree in Middle Grades Education from East Carolina University, specializing in Language Arts and Social Studies. This year, I will again be teaching English Language Arts, a subject I have taught for 16 years in some way, shape, or form and for which I have attained highly qualified status. My goal as a Reading and Writing teacher is to help students to foster a love for reading and writing, to think critically, to write clearly and persuasively, to analyze text, and to understand and utilize the research process. It is one of my greatest joys to motivate children to learn and enjoy reading and writing.
During my time off, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Rob, and our two sons, Chandler(23 - how did THAT happen?!) and Nic(19 - 2nd year in college - YIKES!!). Both boys played baseball from the time they were 5 years old, and I loved to sit in the stands and cheer them on as they played. Now, I am an empty-nester, so I have had to find other ways to occupy my time (not as difficult as you might think it would be). I love to walk, read, shop, and spend as much time as possible by any body of water...the ocean, river, lake, or pool...water gives me a sense of relaxation like nothing else. I look forward to getting to know each of you and helping you as you grow as a reader, a writer, and a thinker.
