Mr. Charles Hensey

Hi. My name is Charles Hensey and I am starting my second year as a teacher at Clayton High School. I have previously taught at South Johnston High School and East Wake. This will be my 17th year teaching in the North Carolina Public Schools. I have also worked at the Department of Public Instruction and the Center for Urban Affairs at North Carolina State. This year I am teaching Honors World History, American History I (standard and Honors), and American History II. In the past, I've taught Honors and Standard Civics, Honors Psychology, AP European History, and AP Psychology.


I am a native of Raleigh who loves living in North Carolina. We enjoy going to the mountains for vacations and I grew up a fan of North Carolina State Athletics. I enjoy spending time with my twins, playing games, and watching great movies.

 Starting this week, we are transitioning to a new schedule. All of the Zoom links are in my Google Class Sites. If you need access to the site, please reach out to me.
