Mrs. Jill Henderson

Hello!  I am Jill Henderson, the English Language Development teacher for students at Tarwater Elementary School.  I am very excited to begin my fifth year at Tarwater!  I received my Bachelor of Science degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education, with an emphasis on Learning Disabilities, from Northern Arizona University.  Upon graduation, I moved to California and began my teaching career.  After teaching for seven years in California I returned to Arizona and joined the Chandler Unified School District.  I taught as a special education teacher at the elementary school level within the district for nine years before spending several years at home with my three children.  

On a personal note, I live with my husband and our three wonderful children in Chandler.  I love to read books, rollerblade and watch my children play soccer!
