Amber Henderson

Why I teach: 
I teach because I believe it is my higher calling to really motivate the type of change we need in our communities in Chicago.  I teach for the purpose of inspiring youth to overcome obstacles, reach their full potential and dreams, and give back to the communities they once survived.

What I like doing when I’m not inspiring kids:
Workout and Eat! (Oxymoronic, I know) Spend time with my family. DANCE!
