Mr. Robert McHenry

I grew up in Alaska - we moved there when I was 2 years old.  My parents finally settled in Aniak where I attended school from grades 6th through graduation.  

 

I earned my Bachelors in Business Mgmt (with an emphasis in Data Processing) from the University of Alaska Anchorage.  I worked for a couple of years as a tech support / sales rep for an IBM business partner in Anchorage.  While working I felt the pull to return to college to work on my Masters.

 

Upon receiving my Masters in Teaching Computers from the University of Alaska Anchorage, I started off teaching at Hydaburg City Schools in Alaska.  While there I was Computer Coordinator, Athletic Coordinator, taught 6th grade PE, General Business, keyboarding, computers I and II, and college classes for the University of Alaska Southeast.

 

While at Hydaburg my parents retired (from Kuspuk School District) so in order to be near them, I took a position at Cottey College in Missouri as the Academic Computer Manager for 2 years.  I then moved to Panola College in Carthage, TX as Director of Computer Services for 2 years, then relocated to central Texas in Burnet CISD where I was the Technology Director for 2.5 years.

 

While working at Burnet CISD I met and married the love of my life - Kristin McHenry 

 

I became the Technology Director in Springtown ISD in January 2002. 

 

Kristin and I enjoy going to Scarsboro faire each year, doing dog rescue (currently have 7 rescues), collecting WW II model airplanes, and I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboy fan - which is probably the reason I migrated to Texas in the first place, that and to find my wife!
