Mrs. Lori Hennessey, IE2

Hello, my name is Lori Hennessey.  I grew up in the beautiful state of Michigan where I graduated from Michigan State University (GO SPARTANS!) with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  Immediately after graduation, I moved to Atlanta where I taught for 6 years with Atlanta Public Schools followed by 7 years of teaching at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.  Feeling very blessed, the next 10 years of my life included being a stay at home mom and raising my two wonderful daughters, Taylor (20 - UGA student) and Sydney (17 - Lambert HS student).  After returning to the work force in 2014, I worked for 2 years as an Instructional Assistant for Fulton County Schools.  I then transitioned to Sharon Elementary where I currently serve as a Kindergarten Instructional Assistant.

My many interest include spending time with my family and friends, traveling, playing tennis and watching my girls play their favorite sports (tennis and soccer).

I am looking forward to a fabulous fourth year of teaching at Sharon!

Are you ready for the best year yet?  Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

This will be my 9th year teaching and  my 6th year at Sharon.  I graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2012 with my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education.  I believe that one should never stop learning, so I returned to KSU and received my Masters in Inclusive Education.  My favorite part of teaching it is telling my students they are capable, and watching them believe in themselves while conquering their goals.

My greatest passions are teaching and animals.  In fact, my love of animals and hippotherapy lead me to become a teacher.  My husband and I have a stunning, grey horse named Celeste.  We also have two American Staffordshire Terriers named Shakira and Captain. 

I look forward to getting to know you.  This will be a great year!
