Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to third grade! I am Mrs. Benny and I am very happy to be at the Otterville School District teaching third grade! This will be my fifth year teaching. It is going to be a fun-filled year! I grew up in Tipton, Missouri where I graduated from high school in 2014. I then went to Central Methodist University to receive my Bachelor’s of Science in Education degree in 2017. I love living in the Otterville community with my husband Ryan, raising our son Jerome!
I chose to be a teacher because I wanted to give students a second place they could call home and come to have fun while learning. In third grade we will not only be learning a lot of new aspects in core subjects, but also learning to connect those aspects with real world responsibilities they will have in their future. Third grade is a big year for responsibility and growth, and I really enjoy seeing that in each one of my students.
Third grade will be using class dojo for contact and communication. Parents can sign up for dojo and receive updates on their student’s progress, if you have not already in the past. Please feel free to contact me about concerns or questions. Good things are yet to come this year!
