Meet The Teacher

Hello I am Mrs. Volante Henderson and I am part of the fabulous 5th grade Dream Team. I am honored and excited to teach your child in the areas of Science, Social Studies , Math and Language Arts. My homeroom is home to Henderson’s VIPs.

This is my second year at A. Dorothy Hains Magnet school. My teaching experience consists of teaching collegiate level studies, ESL to Chinese students and 20 years of Human Resources training and instruction.

I began my undergraduate education at Lincoln University in PA and completed my degree in Criminal Justice from Phoenix University. I also hold a Masters of Arts degree in Management and Leadership.

I look forward to collaborating with anyone involved with our student’s education (parents, guardians, communities and other educators). In my classroom, we will stress excellent manners and conduct. Together we can equip our young ones with good character, conduct, societal awareness and great self-esteem. My main teaching philosophy is that you can learn something new everyday!

This is a very different year for all of us. I just ask your patience and understanding throughout this process.  I believe in partnernship and collaboration and together we can and will make this a fantastic learning experience for our students but it will take "the village"!
