Mr. Tyler Hensley
Mr. Hensley is in his 14th year teaching high school mathematics (4th year at Woodcreek). Prior to moving to Woodcreek, Mr. Hensley taught in Huntington Beach, San Diego, and Kosrae, Micronesia.
Mr. Hensley grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from USC with a bachelor's degree in Business Management (Corporate Finance). After USC, Mr. Hensley began a career in private wealth management in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. Self-reflection and a sense of adventure led Mr. Hensley to resign from wealth management and take a position teaching as a volunteer in Micronesia.
In 2010, Mr. Hensley returned to California and earned a Teaching Credential and M.A. Education (Digital Teaching and Learning) from Azusa Pacific University. Since then, Mr. Hensley has been involved with extensive professional development with the Wharton School of Business and as a Hollyhock Teaching Fellow at Stanford University.
In addition to teaching, Mr. Hensley is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Finance Lab, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing underprivileged students with a personalized and experiential financial education.
Though he will miss the beaches in Southern California, Mr. Hensley is excited to have made the move north with his wife (a Granite Bay native) and three young children.
