• My name is Coach McHenry and I am honored to be your health and physical education instructor. I have been privileged to be a teacher at Northern Guilford Middle School since the school opened in 2006. I received my Master's Degree from North Carolina A&T State University and am a National Board Certified teacher. I have been blessed and privileged to be a health and physical educator for 33 years. I love working with young people and helping students become the BEST they can be!

    The goal of my class is to create healthy, active, life-long learners who value the importance of personal health and wellness. We will work together to help you stay healthy, become more physically active, and help you reach your greatest human potential emotionally, academically, and physically. You will participate in a wide variety of activities and programs to improve your fitness level and knowledge. We will regularly monitor your fitness and skill levels, record your progress, set high standards for yourself and strive to accomplish those goals. One of the goals I have for you is to gain the confidence and skills needed so that you can participate in a wide variety of physical activities now and throughout your lifetime. Physical Education/Health is for everyone! I look forward to sharing the journey with you throughout the year of helping you achieve your personal health/wellness goals.

    When I am not teaching, coaching and co-leading the Fuel Up to Play 60 program at NGMS I enjoy spending time with my 2 adult children and 3 grandsons, working out, camping, and attending sporting events.

    Go Nighthawks!
