Ms. Henricks

Hello!  My name is Amy Henricks and I am very excited for my first year teaching at Yates Mill Elementary School and being a part of the third grade team.  I have always had a passion for working with children and I will put these skills to use by building relationships with students and cultivating an environment where everyone feels seen and heard in the classroom.

I grew up in Charlotte, NC and moved to Raleigh to attend NC State University.  I graduated with my degree in elementary education in 2023 and am happy to be staying in the Raleigh area to teach in Wake County.  I was drawn to teach at Yates Mill Elementary because of the great community and staff that make this school so special!  Before entering the teaching profession, I have always enjoyed working with children, whether it be through my jobs as a summer camp counselor and swim lesson instructor.

When not in the classroom, I love exploring new parks and coffee shops in Raleigh.  I take advantage of the local library to read new books in my free time.  I also enjoy exercising and going on runs and you’ll probably catch me listening to Taylor Swift.  When I get the chance to travel, I love going to the beach!  I am grateful for the opportunity to get to work with your children this year!
