Welcome to fourth grade little Eagles!! I am Mrs. Wenzel and I think learning is groovy! I love Texas and I love teaching fourth grade! I have been a part of the Challenger family for twenty-two years, the majority of that time as the 4th grade GT teacher. My passion is social studies, but I currently teach ELA and Reading.


I have a Bachelor's Degree in History and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, I am certified to teach ESL and GT, and am a past president of the Texas Council for the Social Studies. My own children went through Challenger Elementary and are graduates of PHS. My son is a pilot. My daughter lives in Massachussetts and is mother of our two grandchildren, Maddie and Ben. I enjoy visiting museums and historical places with my husband, cooking, crafting, and spending time with my family and friends.


I thank you for the opportunity to grow and learn with your fourth grader this year! It will be a groovin adventure!
