Ms. Christine Benda
Welcome to Second Grade!
I am excited for a wonderful year. I received my undergraduate degree from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. I obtained a master's degree in teaching and learning with an emphasis on reading from the University of St. Francis, Joliet, Ill. I began my career at Boulder Hill Elementary School teaching kindergarten. I moved to Fox Chase Elementary School kindergarten after two years. When the opportunity was presented, I moved to second grade. After a few years, I started teaching first grade, and now this year I am back in second grade. I've been blessed to work with many wonderful children and their families.
