Heninger teaches 8th grade world history and reading. Shes taught at Dauphin Jr. High School for two years. Heninger loves her job for several reasons.

I also get to interact with youth which is wonderful."Students say they enjoy having her as a teacher because of her caring spirit. Keefe Gonzalez says he likes her because she doesn`t give homework just to give it, she does it because she knows they must learn.
