Art teacher Spenser Hensel goes a step further than teaching to impact the lives of children. Hensel and his wife are foster parents for children and he
is expecting another baby in December. Along with fostering and teaching 2D and AP 2D art at school, Hensel will be coaching girls flag football. Hensel is taking on a lot, but the hardships are well worth it. “They’re in a tough spot, they’re being pulled away from their family for whatever reason, and it’s our job as their foster parents to relieve them of that bur- den and take it on ourselves as adults,” Hensel said.
