Hello My Name Is...
Mrs. Bonnie Benson
Welcome to 2nd Grade! I graduated from the University of Nevada Reno in 2004 with distinction with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. In 2014, I received my certification as a TESL teacher.
My philosophy on education is that it should be meaningful, connect to real life, hands-on, and FUN! My goal is that each child in my class leave with two things: the belief that they CAN do whatever they set their mind to and a life-long love of learning.
I am a Mobile 1:1 Project participant and mentor. There is a laptop for each child in the classroom that will be used to enhance and enrich the curriculum as well as bring our classroom into the 21st century!
My hobbies are baking, reading, water-skiing, hiking, guitar, gardening, art, and being with my family. I am a proud mother of both a middle school student and a high school student.
