These Conjoined Twins Are Now All Grown Up And Have Made An Important Decision About Their Future

If the names Abby and Brittany Hensel don’t immediately sound familiar to you, their picture probably does. They are very famous conjoined twins. They even had their own reality show on TLC for awhile.

It has been years since the conjoined twins were reality TV stars, and now they choose to keep their lives a lot more low key and private, but we’ve discovered what they’ve been up to these past few years.

The Hensel twins went to college, graduated and got jobs, but this was no easy feat. At first, they wanted to go to two different colleges and pursue two different degrees. They even wanted to have two completely different jobs. For ordinary twins, that would be fine, but for two twins who share the same body, that would be a lot more work.

In the end, the Hensels agreed to go to the same college, Bethel University in Minnesota. They both graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts, and they both agreed to the same career – teaching.

During their college days, the twins had required student teaching. Before they were officially student teachers, the school where they would be teaching, had the twins come in for a question and answer session with the students. Watch the video below to learn what happened at this question and answer session and to see the Hensel twins in the classroom.

Since this video, the Hensels landed a job as math teachers for 4th and 5th grade students. Even though they are two separate people with two separate brains, they have agreed to share one salary. They are okay with this for now because they understand that since they share one body they are technically doing the job of one person; although, since they each have their own degree and unique teaching style, they hope that they are able to negotiate for a raise in the future.

Does it surprise you that the students were so accepting of having conjoined twins for teachers? Do you think it is fair to make them share one salary, or do you think they should each be paid separately?
