Alex Wenzel, M. Ed., M.A.

Alex (Just ‘Ms. Alex’) has been the Principal at DCIS at Fairmont since 2020.  Her educational career has led from teaching math and biology to leadership and consultancy roles in global learning, mathematics, educational technology, service learning and instructional coaching.  Alex has worked and lived as an educator in South Korea, Venezuela, Singapore, Wisconsin and Denver. She has been with Denver Public Schools since 2017 as an Assistant Principal and Principal. 

Long before becoming the Principal, Alex chose DCIS at Fairmont as the school of choice for her own two children.  She found that DCIS is a school that aligns to her values and a place where her own children could learn their heritage spanish language.  DCIS is a school where students learn to see themselves as part of a community and global world and their own responsibility to make a positive difference.  Alex continues to foster and grow these as Principal.

Outside of school, Alex loves to garden and hike, can vegetables and make homemade soap!  She loves stargazing and birding too and would love to plan more scuba diving trips.  You can find Alex and her family on a camping or hiking trail near you!
