She does plays favorites as stated below me.. She'll pick on you in front of everyone if you're not one of her favorites... call you out, yell your name out... if you dont listen to you she'll stare at your with her fishy face... if youre not a band geek but you want to be in band because you like your instrument ... you wont be her favorite.

she plays favorites. if your her favorite you will remember her forever as one of the greatest teachers youve had. if you arent one of her favorites, you will still "like" her but she makes band a little more difficult

Literally, my favorite teacher in that school. You can talk to her as a friend and just chill out with her. We compare music all the time, like favorite bands and stuff. She has finally made counting rhythm click in my head. FINALLY! haha shes amazing. I love her! I want to be left back in high school just so I can stay in her class. The only things I will miss most about high school is band, marching band and Ms. Hendrickson. and dont forget Mrs. Franzke!!!<333...and Aweh -sing to the tune of any song- =)

She is so funny! Always has interesting stories to tell and makes very nice sound effects. She makes band truly enjoyable =) And as for marching band, it is definitely not something to be embarassed about--yeah the outfits are a little different than normal wear but we have such a great time together and it's untimately a fun experience.

loses a lot of dedicated band students because they refuse to be humiliated as a marching bander. some kids can get out of it with sports, but I wasn't so lucky so I was forced to quit, or endure another two years of embarassment. no one wants to be remembered in high school as someone on the marching band

GREAT teacher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fair grading policy, great choice in music, unbelievable knowledge of music in general, a devoted teacher, and a amicable teacher. If you don't already love music, she will make you love music.

Ms. Hendrickson is wonderful, she helped my child become someone through music. My child loves her as a teacher and someone she can turn to when she needs to talk. I can't express how much she means

Ms. Hendrickson is really nice. If you act respectful towards her, she'll like you. It's like that with most teachers. But if you don't like playing your instrument, why are you even in band? She's really helpful.

Ms. H is hands down the best conductor I've ever had. Her sense of humor, great musical taste, and sincerity are the reasons why she is one of the best in CHS.
