Mr. Alvin James Henry Jr.
Greeting sixth grade parents,my name is Alvin Henry and I have been teaching for thirty-one years, nineteen of which have been here at Lake Olympia. I received my B.A. in Education from Harding University, Arkansas and my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University in Austin Texas.
I enjoy teaching and inspiring my students to improve their skills in all areas academically and socially, so they can become productive citizens. I have a wonderful family; wife Yvette of twenty-nine years, and we have two beautiful children, Alexandra and A.J. I'm a Master Segregant in the United States Army Reserve with 34 years of service. I am a member of the Greatest Fraternity in the world;Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated. In my leisure time I enjoy running, biking, cross-fit and competing in duathlons.
This year, we will be using Schoology to communicate in short informal and formal discussions about a variety of literature and media. We will learn to improve our writing and the work of others through peer review using discussions.
You will submit assignments and essays in Schoology and there will usually be a rubric attached to the assignment ensuring students turn in their best work. We will also take quizzes from time to time in Schoology.
It will be my joy and pleasure to have your children in my class. We will have a great school year.
