• Welcome to PVT!
          I am Rachel Henderson  and I teach the following courses:
    - English 9 Honors
    - English 9 CP
    - English 12 Honors/MCC Concurrent Credit
    - English 12 CP
    - Creative Writing
    - Public Speaking
     I hold an MEd, and recently completed post-graduate work at the University of San Diego and University of California, San Diego.  In the evenings, I am an adjunct professor at a local New Jersey college.  I have almost 19 years working in education, and this is my 17th year with the district.  Other experiences I possess include working as a Program Manager Analyst on Wall Street, and I am a veteran of both the United States Navy and Army. 

          My spare time activities include traveling, hiking, camping, white-water rafting, and VERY amateur mountain-biking. In the winter, I am an avid participant in the the Olympic sport, curling, and enjoy occasional skiing. Other free time activities I enjoy include trail riding with a couple of NJ Jeep clubs, playing challenging strategy-based board games, and playing an active role in the SCA (an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts, skills, and traditions of pre-17th-century Europe).
       This year, our school district is conintinuing to embrace 21st Century technology.  As such, we are asking that students take advantage of Remind, a free and anonymous text-messaging platform that reminds students of upcoming due dates, as well as the expanding Google technology.  Expect your student to be working with Google Classroom, Google Drive, Google Docs, and other related ONLINE software that allow students to work on tasks while on one machine, and easily pick up where they left off on a different machine/tablet/smartphone, etc. This file --> Remind, Google Classroom, Genesis will hopefully clarify whatever questions you have. 

    If you need to contact me, I can be reached best by email (

    With my 9 College Prep/ICR course, I team up with Co-Teacher Pegeen Dombrowsky.  If you need to reach her, please email dombrowskyp@mcvts.net, or phone 732-985-0717 X2200.
