Secondary Special Education

My name is Amalie (Harmon) Henrichsen and I am starting my 11th year at Hawthorn Academy as a middle school special education teacher and as the testing and transition coordinator in the special education department.  I have a Bachelor's Degree from BYU in History teaching with a minor in political science teaching and a Master's Degree from the University of Phoenix in Education Studies with an emphasis in Special Education.  I am originally from Johnsburg, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. I am a Chicago sports fan and will cheer on all of my teams especially the Chicago Cubs.  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, travelling, playing and watching sports, swimming, family, bargain shopping, and exploring the world around us.  I am love being a part of Hawthorn Academy and to work with the students on becoming life-long learners and to be part of their journey in education.
