Chris Henriksen

My name is Chris Henriksen. I am the Gifted and Talented Specialist (GATE) here at Sonnie Hereford Elementary. This is my 4th 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 19 years. We have seven children. Emma is almost 18 years old and is a senior at Grissom High School. Ava is a junior at Grissom High School and is 16 years old. Anna is 14 and is a freshman at Grissom High School. CJ is in 7th grade at Mt Gap Middle and he is almost 13 years old. Ella is 8 years old and in 3rd grade at Mt Gap Elementary. Then we have 5 year old twins Isla and Cason who are in Kindergarten at Mt. Gap Elementary this year. We are very active members of our church and enjoy playing and watching lots of sports and outdoor activities. We especially enjoy going to the beach. I am a huge Auburn fan and love college football. War Eagle!
