Biography

My name is Janet Henderson. I have been with the district for 12 years and have been teaching preschool for 9 years. I love working with children and enjoy seeing how each child grows and learns throughout the year. My husband's name is Corey. He owns a towing company along with some other family members. My daughter Rachel is a freshman at the University of Iowa. My son David is a senior at Van Meter High School. I love dogs and have a black lab named Carrie. My family and I are big fans of ISU basketball and have season tickets so we are very driving to Ames throughout the fall and winter for all the games.
