About Mrs. Benton...
Position: 4th Grade Teacher
Welcome to Mrs. Benton's fourth grade class! I am so excited to work with you and your child throughout this upcoming school year!
My Education and Professional Background
I am an Arizona native and graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a minor in Spanish in 2013. I earned my master's degree in educational leadership through NAU in 2019. I began teaching in an inner city school in Phoenix. I joined CUSD and the Basha team in 2015. In October 2016, I was awarded the Husband and Wife Law Team Teacher of the Month award, through their Teacher Appreciation program. I am thrilled to be part of the best school district in Arizona, Chandler Unified School District! I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember, as children are the future of our world. As a life-long learner myself, it is my true passion to model my love of learning to set every child up for a successful educational career.
My Educational Philosophy
I strongly believe that parents and teachers must work together as a team to ensure the success of every child. With high expectations held, each child is able to reach their full potential. Educating the whole child is important to me, which includes both social and emotional learning. Please feel free to contact me via email with any questions or concerns.
