Welcome students and parents!
My name is April Hesselbein. This school year will be my 25th year of teaching and my 17th year to teach at The Anthony School. I am married to a wonderful husband, Tom (we just celebrated our 40th anniversary!) We have 2 children, Liza who is married to Coby. They have 2 energetic, fun, active children, Keller and Asher Grace. I'm so lucky to have them living here in Little Rock. My son Bradley lives in Kutztown, Pennsylvania with his wife, Shena. They have a precious 1 year old boy, Sammy. It is very hard to have them so far away from Little Rock but I do get to see them about every 3 months. My family enjoys spending time in Hot Springs on Lake Ouachita, where my husband and I grew up. We love boating, swimming, fishing and taking sunset cruises.
In addition to having a 4th grade homeroom, I teach science and reading to 4th graders and also teach science to 5th graders. TAS students are so excited to learn! Each school year I look forward to seeing the upcoming 5th graders and meeting the new 4th graders. It is always a fun to observe how much growth that a beginning 4th grader makes over the 2 years that I have them in my class. I am fortunate to teach in such a positive environment with supportive parents, co-teachers, and administrators. I look forward to another successful school year!
