Bonnie Henson

Bonnie Henson a long time member of the North Plains School Community passed away on December 23, 2019. She started as an instructional assistant in 1984 and was hired as a teacher in 1991. Then, she worked twenty-three years exclusively teaching first grade teacher. She retired in the Spring of 2015. Each day she greeted each of her students with a reassuring and sincere smile. Whenever, anything did not go as planned, she refelcted on what she could do differently to make the next day perfect for each child. She would gleefully announce each time a student got it and joined the ranks of “Reader”. She developed a class family each year, a culture of kindness and caring and did anything she could to give each student the best day of learning possible. Prior to consolidation, if someone from the staff might see a student across the road picking strawberries during class, she would always be part of the group who would cross the road, reassure the parent and bring the student to class, and give them a day full of love.
