Grade 6 – Mrs. Maria Henshey
Maria Henshey graduated from Millersville University with a degree in elementary education.
Mrs. Henshey has been a part of Catholic education for most of her life as a student, an educator, and a parent. Over the course of her 23 years as an educator she has instructed third through eighth grades. Nativity BVM in Media PA is where she spent most of her early years teaching ELA and science. She then taught part time at St. Margaret’s School in Woodbury Heights, NJ which allowed her to continue to do what she loves… teach and be home with her children.
When Maria Henshey moved back to Pennsylvania she accepted a 4th grade position at East Pikeland Elementary in Phoenixville Area School District. While the experience was enriching, she chose to return to Catholic education. She was extremely fortunate to spend the next ten years at St. Cornelius School in Chadds Ford teaching sixth through eighth grades ELA, Lab Learner, social studies, and Religion
For many summers Maria Henshey has taught in the enrichment program and that is what led her to St. Agnes. She was truly impressed with the vibrant school and parish and is extremely happy to join this wonderful community.
Maria lives in West Grove with her husband, Jim, and her two children.
Grade 6 – Ms. Amber English
Like her students, Miss English was also lucky enough to receive a Catholic School education. While growing up in Northeast Philadelphia she attended St. Jerome from PreK-8 and later moved on to Archbishop Ryan for High School. While in high school she also started to teach her own dance classes, which convinced her that teaching is what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. From high school Miss English went onto Temple University to study Early Childhood Education, where she graduated with a Bachelors in Education, and PA Teaching Certificate. She is now working on her Masters in Education and St. Joseph’s University, where she will graduate from in May 2018.
Coming from 4th grade at St. Francis de Sales in Philadelphia, she is excited to be apart of the St. Agnes parish. When Miss English isn’t with her three dogs, you can catch her reading a book or cheering on the Flyers.
