Dr. Chris Henderson, Principal

After graduating from The University of Tennessee, I began working with Knox County Schools. I taught 5th grade at Spring Hill Elementary School. I went on to become an administrative assistant and later Assistant Principal at Halls Elementary School. During that time I completed my doctor of education degree at the University of Tennessee. I served as assistant principal at Karns Elementary and then returned to Halls Elementary as Principal. I am very excited to be at Farragut Intermediate! It is an amazing school with some wonderful students, parents, teachers, and staff who are dedicated to what is best for children.
