Welcome to 8th Grade ELA! My name is Shannon Beninato and this is my first year at Boyet Junior High. I graduated from the University of New Orleans in May of 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education (1-8th Grade certification).
I began my teaching career in Pearl River at Creekside Junior High where I spent 11 years teaching 8th grade english and reading. Four years ago, I moved to Madisonville Junior High and taught 8th grade reading and english for three years.
I absolutely love teaching reading and english and could not imagine myself in any other profession. My mission for the class is to strengthen our reading and writing skills in order to become better learners, readers, and writers! I am excited to be here and look forward to a great year.
