Hello! My name is Danny Henderson and I am the principal at Savoy Elementary School. I am excited about coming back into a communitiy that I started my career in 23 years ago as a Substitute Teacher and helping our students succeed this year both academically and in their character growth.
Our core belief is that we can make a positive, life-changing difference for every child through education. This belief is what motivates us to innovate, improve, and excel in teaching the children of our community.
I am a graduate of Whitewright High School and I earned my undergraduate degree in Kineseology from Texas A&M Commerce, where I also got my Master Degree in Education Administration. I have 23 years experience in 3 different district and 14 years in adminstration at various levels. I spent 19 years in Blue Ridge as a coach, teacher, Athletic Director, and MS/HS Principal. Then two years in Pottsboro High School as the Assistant Principal and the past two years here at Savoy ES.
I’m married to the love of my life, Shary, and we have two kids. Nolan is attending North Texas to pursue an Aerospace Logistics Degree. Lyndsay graduated last year from Whitewright High School and will be going to Grayson County College to pursue Accounting.
I love the community of Savoy and am honored to serve in the education of its children. Go Cardinals!
