Degrees and Certifications:
M.A. in Teaching Social Studies Education (Teachers College, Columbia University NYC)
My name is Paul Henning and I teach 8th grade Global Studies. This is my 4th year teaching and I am especially excited to be at Battle Creek Middle School this year. I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City and moved back to Minnesota to teach. My field is my passion and I look forward to developing informed, critical-thinking students who center their identity on creating meaningful change in their communities. I also hold the record for the longest reigning BCMS WWE Rock Paper Scissors Champion. Having grown up in the area, I look forward to being at BCMS!
When I'm not at BCMS, I spend my time training for the Nordic ski season! I compete across the Midwest and end the season with the American Birkebeiner in February. During the season I coach local high school teams but I am assistant coaching track this year at BCMS being a distance runner myself. Additionally I love playing music, spending time with family and friends, playing ultimate frisbee, being outdoors, and reading.
