Hi there! My name is Matt Hensler, and I’m a Technology Education Instructor at Jersey Shore Area Senior High School in Northcentral, PA. I’m 23, going on 24 (in November 😉 ), so I’m probably the younger one of the group. I’ve been teaching for a little over a year now, so I’m also probably the more inexperienced of the group when it comes to teaching.
I teach 9th and 10th grade graphic design, desktop publishing, and web design (with a little wood manufacturing tied in). Since it’s obvious I teach in a subject the revolves around Technology, it’s no surprise that I love it. I’ve always been a Technology nut. I’ve worked in IT, been an part-time web designer, taught digital photography, ran a student news program, and a little in between in just my short few years as a teacher.
I love incorporating non traditional methods of instruction into my classroom, which is why I’m really looking forward to this class. I really enjoy learning about other’s ideas and approaches to keeping learning interactive and different. One of the biggest things I took from the previous 7 week course (Digital Storytelling) were the ideas that were share amongst all of us as peers. I hope to be able to continue that trend in this class as well.
This is my fiance and I at Ricketts Glen state park. Notice the Wilkes shorts! My fiance is a senior there in the Pharmacy program!
