Chris Wenzel-First Grade

Hello! My name is Chris Wenzel. This is my 24th year teaching first graders at Havens. I thoroughly enjoy helping first graders become the best students and citizens they can be! I’m a proud alumnus of Michigan State University. I  also have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Saginaw Valley State University, as well as 45 post graduate credits from Marygrove College and Spring Arbor University. 

Both of my parents were teachers as well. My father taught high school math in Saginaw Township. I’ve followed more closely in my mother’s career footsteps, however. She was an elementary teacher in St. Charles.

I am recently married and enjoy spending time with my wife Sara and step-daughter Hailey. I also enjoy reading, traveling, walking the dog, as well as watching and participating in sports. I’m particularly passionate about all things MSU. I’ve only missed attending 4 home basketball games in the past 28 years, and only a handful of football games in that time span as well.
