My name is Josephine Henriquez and I teach 7th grade math. I have a master’s degree in secondary math education. I have taught middle school math and science for three years, as part of Teach For America. I establish goals, communicate individualized strategies, and affect change by building on the students’ strengths. In addition, I have recently completed my Medical Degree at SUNY. I have decided to postpone my residency to spend time with my two young sons while getting back to my first passion: teaching.
