    Welcome to a new exciting school year! I can’t believe this will be my third year working for BIA. I am eager to meet the students and build new experiences together.

    I am Maestra Benavides and I will be your child’s third grade teacher. I have been working in the education field for 13 years. In addition of being certified to teach Spanish and English as a Second Language PreK-12th, I have a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science and a Master’s degree in Bilingual Education.


    To be a teacher is more than a career for me, it is my passion. I believe that with appropriate classroom management, and showing children that you really care about their learning, they can attain a great many achievements. My goal is to evaluate the students’ educational levels and move them to a higher level to maximize their potentials. I believe that “EVERY STUDENT CAN LEARN” with the appropriate support, and their willingness to try their best.


    Please, make sure that you check the behavior calendar that is taken home every day and praise your child for their effort. Homework is sent on Monday and return on Friday. Encourage your child to read every day. You can find stories to read in Spanish on the following link:



    Finally, make sure you check Maestra Benavides Facebook page to follow news about the classroom.



    Let’s work together towards your child’s education and success!
