    Third Grade Teacher


    My name is Kristi Benefiel, and I am thrilled to be your child's third grade teacher this school year.  I want to take this time to share a little bit about myself with you.


    I was born and raised right here in Louisiana.  In 1993, I received my BA in elementary education from UNO.  I have 16 years of teaching experience, having taught first, second, and third grades in Jefferson Parish and in St. Tammany Parish.  At one point in my career, I took some time off from teaching to be home with my children.  I have four children with my husband Jeff.  We have two rescue dogs named Bentley and Emmy too.  I love Mexican food, listening to all kinds of music and drinking coffee and ICEES!! We love to take family vacations whenever we get the chance. 

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    Together, I know we can make this year a great one for your child!
