The Teacher

Welcome to my blog!

My name is Kyle Henry and I graduated from Albion College in May 2012 with a B.A. in English and minor in Political Science. I completed my student teaching at Marshall High School under the mentorship of Mr. Mike Fitzpatrick, teaching three sections of English 10 and a section of English 11. While there, I designed and implemented unit plans on non-fiction, poetry, ACT prep, how to write a research paper, Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, and Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises. I was also fortunate enough to coach several of my students on the women’s varsity tennis team.

Originally hailing from the small Detroit suburb of Almont, I’ve had a passion for reading and writing for as long as I can remember. Both of my parents come from creative backgrounds, which enforced a great deal of independence and free-thinking from the very beginning of my childhood. Growing up, I liked to think of myself becoming a dentist, pilot, meteorologist, lawyer, pharmacist, oh–and a psychiatrist. When it came down to the bones of it all, I realized that I just enjoy serving the public good, encouraging young citizens to achieve their best through shown potential.

I like to think of my role in this said profession as much more than just teaching, rather, instructing others for life. Whether it is coaching, lecturing, or writing, I am constantly thinking of ways in which I can make a difference for the betterment of my community. As a youth advocate, I believe that it is the teacher’s role to be that difference, and to inspire others to act on their own sense of charisma.
