Welcome to

Mr. Hensel’s Website


Welcome! I have the great honor of being your child’s teacher! This is my 43rd year of teaching and my sixth year teaching fifth grade.  I have taught in Carlisle County for 27 years, then at Hendron/Lone Oak Elementary since 2000. I “retired” in 2005 only to find I missed teaching and was fortunate to “come home” to teaching once again.  I love teaching and seeing the “lightbulbs” lighting up in a child when they finally “get it.” 

I have a great family.  My son, Travis, 28,  is married to Emi (a dance instructor) who have  blessed us with our first grandchild, Jack who is five and our granddaughter, Norah, who is three, and born Sept. 19 of this year is Jude Elize.  Travis and his family just returned from Uganda in on a mission since last January, helping with education and life there. He works for the Market House Theatre. My daughter, Emily, 25, is teaching German at Boone County High School.

I am having a great year with your child!
