Mr. Henningsen is by far one of the best teachers I've had at Andover. I had him for History 300 and am now taking his senior year elective purely because he's such a great teacher. I never liked history until I was in his class. His class is hard, but fairly so. You'll get the grade you truly deserve based on your work. He's a great guy and is always available to help, plus he's more passionate about his subject than anyone I've ever met! Don't pass up the opportunity to take a class with him.

The best teacher I have ever had. I'm probably going to major in history. His founders class is phenomenal, but so are his survey courses.

MR H IS THE MANNNN. He really taught me how to write - and to be honest, each term was easier than the next. (got 6's on my research papers yesssss! and that is after i got a 3 /4- on my first paper winter term.)
He's so passionate about history - and I love all his personal stories - esp his stuf

This is a teacher who teaches. Thank you, Mr. Henningsen for two great years of history at Andover. You've made me want to pursue it in college. My friends and I wonder why you're teaching at Andover... you could be running the CIA.

had him for 300. absolutely wonderful. one of the most excellent teachers at PA. and i didn't even like history prior to taking his course. if you work your butt off you'll be proud about a 5. in the end, it's not about the grade.

Mr. Henningsen is a very passionate teacher. It seems like he wanted to have us love history, but also teach us about what's important in life. A legend.

He's challenging, but is also a very good teacher. I was impressed with his ability to keep his own political views out of the classroom, very much appreciated

I heard he's a great teacher, but for heaven's sake don't make him the head of the department. He is so mean and impatient if you want to change your classes.

Even though he knows what he's talking about, and he wants to help, and you can improve, you won't improve by that much. I'm not a historian, nor will I ever amount to what he is in my PA career, so I think he needs to be a little more easy on his studen

He is without doubt the hardest, but best teacher you will ever have. He treats us like historians, and always encourages those who don't do well. Assignments are lengthy & require lots of thought and reflection, but he does his job better than any other.

he's a good teacher, but he likes papers a certain way, and if you don't write them that way you get graded down. actually, whatever you do you get graded down. i don't know if it's the history department or just him...but trying is useless.
