Hello! My name is Maria Benedict, and I have been teaching kindergarten at Ringing Rocks for 17 years. I got my teaching degree at Baker University in Kansas, where I lived most of my life. My husband and I have an 10 year old son, Henry. He keeps me busy playing with legos and HotWheels! I love teaching kindergarten and am excited to spend the year with you!
In my classroom, we love to sing songs, read stories, and talk with each other, as well as all of our math and reading activities! I love to praise and reward students for great behavior and making good choices! I work closely and communicate with parents to make sure we are doing everything possible to help your child be successful.
This year I will be using ClassDojo to communicate with you as well as email sometimes. You will get an invitation to join our ClassDojo site. You are also welcome to email me anytime at email@example.com
Thanks for visiting this site!
