My name is Maggie Hennessy and I teach African American and World History to 9th and 10th graders in South Philadelphia. I love Philadelphia and I love teaching, and I’m trying to figure out how to use the city – with its vast cultural and historic resources – as an extension of my classroom. When I’m not teaching – or working at teaching, I love to swim, read and walk in the woods – all of which is possible year-round in the City of Brotherly Love.
