Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Janet Benec and I am delighted to become a member of the St. Gregory School community. I have had the privilege of teaching kindergarten for the Diocese of Pittsburgh for the past 16 years and currently reside in the city. Branching out north will be a new and exciting chapter for me and my husband and it will allow us to be in closer proximity to our daughter and grandchildren in Evans City. I look forward to the new school year and will be approaching it just like my students with an air of excitement, newness, and anticipation.
Although my formal education at both Edinboro and Chatham Universities has prepared me for my professional career in both Art and Elementary Education, I believe it is my philosophy of education that endears me to my class. It includes not only the importance and passion for what I teach but whom I teach – God’s children.
