My name is Claudia Henze. I was born and raised in the small border town of Douglas, Arizona. I hold a master’s degree from Northern Arizona University and bachelor’s degree from Western New Mexico University. This is my 23rd year in education. I spent nine of those years as a literacy coach and the remaining instructing at the K-3 level. I live within the Higley boundaries, am married to my husband Dan, and have two boys, Ty and Danny.
