Mr. Michael Heneghan
Born and raised here in Indianapolis, circumstances have pulled me away to parts unknown on a variety of occasions including when my parents took our whole family to live in Saudi Arabia when I was five. After three years living near the desert, we came back and I attended Christ the King and Bishop Chatard High School here in Indianapolis. I studied History and Education at Indiana University, then was drawn to Poland to teach teachers of English for two years.
I began my American teaching career at St. Joan of Arc school, while adding English/Language Arts to my license at IUPUI. After eight years of teaching middle school, my family and I moved abroad where I taught middle and high school Literature at American and international schools in Mexico and Latvia, respectively. I teach AP English Language and Speech here at Shortridge and am also involved in technology and the media center.
I love biking, cooking, playing just about any sport or game, and spending time with my family, especially my two daughters Mary and Sarah. This will be my 20th year of teaching and I love it more each year I do it.
