Mrs. Benz Science 6
Hi, I am Mrs. Benz and I am so excited to have you join me at LMS this year for 6th grade science. Some of you may know me from last year when I taught 5th grade math and science but I really LOVE science and can't wait for the school year to start.
I can't wait to meet you and get to know you. In order to help you know me a little better let me tell you a bit about myself. I was born and raised in New Jersey and grew up not very far from Montgomery Township. I have always loved math and science and received a degree in Industrial Engineering from Rutgers University and after my children were born decided I wanted to pass along my love for math and sciences to children. I received my teacher certification and Masters in Teaching from Rider University. I have lived in Belle Mead since 1998 with my husband, Dominique, and our three children, Christian, Nicole and Cameryn. All three of my children attended Montgomery schools and therefore I am a HUGE Montgomery Cougar Fan!
Besides teaching I love to travel, cook, spend time at the Jersey shore and most importantly spending time with my family. My classroom is a place for you to learn, experiment and ask questions! We will explore new and exciting things, building on your past knowledge and open your mind to ponder new questions. I hope you are looking forward to joining me - I know I can't wait!
