Ms. Henley teaches Chinese to middle school students at Faith Middle School, located at Ft. Benning, Ga. Prior to joining DoDEA, Ms. Henley was self-employed and involved in training Chinese instructors at the Morningside Chinese School in Columbus, Ga. Ms. Henley also established Chinese language programs in local high schools in the Columbus area and started two Chinese language programs at Columbus State University. She is a graduate of Christ's College, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature.

Ms. Henley firmly believes in the philosophy of positive expectations, with every student having the potential to shine. One of her 8th grade students writes, "Ms. Henley makes this (Chinese) class enjoyable for everyone. In Chinese I we have the students from the All 'A' Honor roll to the ones that may need the extra boost. Everyone in that class excels."

Another 8th grade student writes, "Because of all Ms. Henley's hard work and effort she has been putting into teaching Faith Middle School students about the Chinese language and culture, I will be attending Columbus High School's Chinese 2 program instead of going into Chinese 1 as a freshman. Without her, none of this would have been possible. She loves her job and I owe it all to her."
