Mrs. Wenzel

This is my 12th year of teaching at Kingsbury, and it just keeps getting better with each passing year! I truly love what I do, and feel blessed to get to be a small part of each of my students' lives. In addition to teaching the 1st grade curriculum, I believe in teaching students about the power of positive affirmations, thinking positively, breathing deeply to manage stress and anger, treating others the way they want to be treated, and accepting themselves and others exactly the way they are.

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle

Studies have shown that students who are happy, positive, and have learned about social and emotional learning (SEL), have higher academic success, less stress, and better behavior.  

"Social and emotional learning can improve positive attitudes towards self and others and increase students’ academic performance by 11 percentile points,” (Durak et al., 2011) (edutopia.org)
