Tanya Woodard - Interim Principal

As the instructional and social-emotional leader of the Hennigan School, it is my responsibility to engage the staff in empowering our students to be the problem-solvers of the world’s future problems and supporting our students in naming and becoming the change they want to see.  Every student is a critical thinker, he/she just needs the correct strategies, words of encouragement, and caring adults to guide him/her along.  At the Hennigan School, our qualified staff is ready to be these adults in your child’s life.  As the staff uses their individual passions, crafts, and styles, all students, at the Hennigan, can thrive and grow from where they are at.  Your child(ren) have great successes in front of them and our school is one step on that path.
