Ms. Gayle Henshaw

Welcome to US history!  I am very excited to work with you this school year.  


After graduating from Robertsdale High School in Robertsdale, Alabama (Go Bears!), I attended Delta State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Science Education.  I then began my teaching career in the Mississippi Delta at

J.Z. George High School.  While there, I served on the first committee to create subject area tests in U. S. history, as well as the Superintendent's Advisory Committee.  After transferring to Long Beach Middle School, I began to work on my Master's of Education degree with a

concentration in Secondary Education from William Carey University.  Then, I began teaching AP US history at Gulfport High School.  During this time, I began the Social Studies curriculum specialist for GHS.  That began a journey of serving as the District's Social Studies Curriculum Specialist for several years and during that time, I was fortunate to teach both world history and US history at Gulfport Central Middle School.  My family then moved to Phoenix, Arizona and I homeschooled my children.  I have two boys - one who is 24 years old and one who is a junior at Gulfport High School.   After a brief visit to Alabama, I returned to Gulfport High School to again teach

AP US history.  This is truly my passion and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to teach your students.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Go Admirals!!
