My name is Emily Henry. The picture above is one of my fiance Ben and me from one of my best friend's wedding's earlier this year. My concentration is English and I will be observing/student teaching at Warhill High School. I became interested in teaching firstly because I love reading and literature and wanted to share that passion in some way. My mother, who is a principal, nurtured the idea of teaching for me, and is one of my most dogged champions. She has really helped me shape the teacher I want to become. That teacher is one who creates a climate of learning--and not just learning English grammar and literature, but learning how to become critical thinkers and citizens of the world through the English language. In a world where reading is continuously replaced with television, the internet, and electronics, I hope to guide my students to and understanding of the continued importance of books--and why books will always be relevant to their lives.
