Mrs. R. Garen

Hello Parents/Guardians/Kids!

Welcome! I am happy to have you and your child in our class this school year! I am Mrs. Rhea D. Garen. In 2007, I came to Henderson as an exchange teacher from the Philippines (a beautiful, tropical archipelago in Asia). I have been teaching for more than 19 years now. I earned my Bachelor in Elementary Education from De La Salle University-Dasmarinas in my home country.

I believe that learning is a continuous 3-way process. It involves the learner, the school and the home. It is just proper to start it right at an early age. I will always do my best to guide your child in school. Please follow-up take home works to reinforce what your child has learned. Talk to your child every night about what happened in school. Constant communication is very essential. 

We are a TEAM. We will make this school year a SUCCESSFUL one TOGETHER!

If you have any concerns, kindly contact me at (252) 438–8415. My e-mail address is

Cheers to a fun and fruitful year!
