Kim Hengen, 6th Grade

Ms. Hengen grew up in the suburbs of central New Jersey.  She attended William Smith College in upstate New York where she studied political theory.  She then moved to New York City and spent time working in a couple of different entry level office positions.  However, she found that she despised working passively in an office.   That is when she pursued her teaching career and returned to school, earning her Masters in the Science of Teaching at The New School for Social Research.  She's been teaching now for 15 years but this will be only her second year teaching middle school as her previous experiences were in high schools.  She loves middle school and will never go back to teaching high school!  In her free time Ms. Hengen enjoys traveling, doing home renovations, playing the piano, hosting barbeques, reading, and spending time with her 7 year old son, Jack.

         Sharon Wilcox-Daiello, 10th and 11th Grade
