About Me

My name is Lisa Henry and I am in my 25th year of teaching mathematics. I have taught just about everything I can from grades 7 through 12 over the course of my teaching career. I began teaching outside of Columbus, then moved to a small district south of Youngstown. I have been teaching at a small district in suburban-rural north of Youngstown for seventeen years. Our public school district has about 1,100 students K-12.

The public high school I teach at has an enrollment of approximately 350 students in grades 9-12, I teach Algebra 2 (following Algebra 1, grades 9-12) and Senior Applied Mathematics (grade 12). My average class size this year is around 22.

I have a Bachelor’s of Education from The University of Toledo in Secondary Education – Mathematics and a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University. In addition to my teaching assignment, I have served on several committees both district-wide and area-wide.

Since 2012, I have led planning for Twitter Math Camp, a four day professional development experience for math teachers. We have grown from 37 attendees in 2012 to 191 attendees in 2016.

I am married and have two children, a 13 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. I am my daughter’s Girl Scout troop leader and am active in my church. Life is never dull in the Henry house.
