Chris Henriksen

My name is Chris Henriksen. I am the Gifted and Talented Teacher (GATE) here at Sonnie Hereford Elementary. This will be my 3rd year here at SHE. Go Wildcats! I have lived in Huntsville for the majority of my life. I have been married to my wife Rebekah for almost 18 years. We have seven children. Emma is almost 17 years old and is a junior at Grissom High School. Ava is a sophomore at Grissom High School and is 15 years old. Anna is 13 and is in the 8th grade at Mt Gap Middle. CJ is in 6th grade at Mt Gap Middle and he is almost 12 years old. Ella is 7 years old and in 2nd grade at Mt Gap Elementary. Then we have 4 year old twins Isla and Cason who will be starting the PreK program at Mt. Gap Elementary this year. We are very active members of our church and enjoy lots of sports and outdoor activities as well as playing games when time permits. We especially enjoy going to the beach. I am a huge Auburn fan and love college football. War Eagle!
