Ms. 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 with a

concentration in Secondary Education.  Then, I began teaching AP US history at Gulfport High School.  During this time, I began the Social Studies curriculum specialist.  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.  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.
