My name is Mrs. Benes, and I am so excited to be here! The children and I are going to do so many fun things while we learn a lot! It will be an exciting year for us!
This is my 4th year teaching at Orting School District. I am originally from Wisconsin, where I taught for 17 years. During my career, I have taught 1st grade for 11 years, Kindergarten for 1 year, Multi-Age 1st & 2nd for 1 year, and was a Technology/Library Media Specialist for 9 years teaching Pre-K through 6th grade. I also spent 3 years as an Adjunct Professor at North Central Technical College in Wisconsin teaching all things Apple & Google. I am excited to be in the 2nd-grade classroom starting the 2020-2021 school year!
In 2016, my family moved to Washington. We currently live in Puyallup. I began teaching 1st grade in Yelm before coming to Orting. I love being in Orting and working close to home! I love seeing the awe of students when they learn something new and enjoy learning from them too!
Thank you for visiting my site! See you soon!
