Welcome to St. John the Baptist Kindergarten! My name is Mrs. Christine Benson. This is my 4th year teaching kindergarten at St. John's. Prior, I taught kindergarten at St. John Vianney in South St. Paul for 14 years. Needless to say, I ADORE teaching kinders! Their excitement and enthusiasm, along with how much they learn and grow in just one school year is a wonderful, fun filled experience. Here are a few things about me.
*B.A. in elementary education from the College of St. Catherine; M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on reading instruction from the University of St. Thomas
*I have also taught first grade and preschool in addition to kindergarten.
*I like walking, camping (R.V. style!), puzzles, games, and eating out!
Looking forward to seeing you soon at St. John the Baptist!
