Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Hello everyone, my name is Orlando Henlon and it’s a great privilege and honor to welcome everyone to our Redland Christian Academy family!
To let you know a little about myself, I was born and raised in Tampa, FL and for college I attended Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, FL. I graduated from FAMU in the Spring of 2000 earning a degree in Graphic Arts Technology. I have been married to my wonderful wife, Devrena, for eight years and we have a beautiful daughter named, Zavierra. God has truly blessed me with a wonderful family!
Glorifying God and being a part of growing His Kingdom is my passion, and upon my graduation from FAMU, I got involved in the campus ministry at my church home in Tampa, FL, where I worked as a college ministry intern for a couple of years. Through that experience and involvement I got an opportunity to work in a ministry full time and in 2007 my wife and I moved to Miami, where I worked for seven years as a campus minister with a local church.
This will be my 2nd year at Redland Christian Academy, and I’m very excited for the opportunity to be teaching Physical Education and Health. I’m looking forward to getting reacquainted with all of the students from last year and welcoming any new students to Redland Christian Academy! I’m also looking forward to getting all the students involved and active in class within a fun atmosphere where they will be able to learn and excel, through team building exercises, games and sports! Some of the sports that we will be playing will be Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Kickball, Disc Golf, Croquette, etc. I plan on emphasizing teamwork and team building in the classes to help the students become better leaders and team players, an aspect which is valuable not only in sports, but in whatever they choose to do in their futures. I hope that this year will challenge each student with trying new things and that they will also be able to build up their confidence through their physical strengthening and endurance!
If you have any questions about our physical education program, you can email me at OHenlon@redlandchristianacademy.org and I will do my best to answer any questions that you may have.
I love teaching in school and life, and I welcome all of you to Redland Christian Academy. I anticipate having another awesome year with you all, and it’s my prayer that God will bless us with many successes together!
In His Will,
