August Teacher of the Month!

Every month the M. L. Phillips family has the opportunity to vote for the Teacher of the Month on facebook. This month, parents, students, and teachers voted for Ms. Stacy Henninge! 

Ms. Henninge teaches 4th grade Writing, Science, and Social Studies, and has been a part of the MLP family for an impressive 23 years! Her children are also a part of the FWISD family. Her daughter, Cady, is the Speech Language Pathologist at Waverly Park Elementary, and her daughter, Emily, teaches Health and coaches volleyball and soccer at Diamond Hill Jarvis High School. Her sons, Jack and Nick, are seniors at Arlington Heights High School. 

Ms. Henninge was nominated for her students' outstanding performance on the 2018 STAAR. Her students performed 10% above the district in Writing! It is obvious that Ms. Henninge is not only great at her job but that she loves it, too. "The connections I make with the kids is my favorite part. As a writing teacher, I love seeing the reluctant writer grow into a child who enjoys writing and is proud of how they've grown". 

Congratulations Ms. Henninge! We are proud to have you here at M. L. Phillips!
