Ms Hengen Biography

Ms. Hengen grew up in the suburbs of central New Jersey. She attended William Smith College in upstate New York where she studied political theory. She then moved to New York City and spent time working in a couple of different entry level office positions. However, she found that she despised working passively in an office. That is when she pursued her teaching career and returned to school, earning her Masters in the Science of Teaching at The New School for Social Research. She’s been teaching now for over 20 years. In her free time Ms. Hengen enjoys traveling, doing home renovations, playing the piano, camping, gardening, hosting barbecues, reading, hanging out with her 13 year old son, Jack, and playing with her dog, Shmookie.
