Ms. Kaila Benenate
Hello and welcome to my art classroom. I have been teaching for four years now and they have all been at Fifth Ward Junior High. This school is extraordinary and teaching is my passion! I love showing students what they are capable of creating in my classroom. I enjoy motivating all students to think deeper about what they want to accomplish and how their artwork can be unique.
I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in May of 2014 with a bachelor's degree in Art Education. I am a member of the National Art Education Associaction(NAEA) and Louisiana Art Education Association(LAEA). In 2016 I was awarded the "LAEA New to the Profession" award at the Fall conference in Hammond. Appointed as the Artist in the Capitol Day Chairperson for LAEA this year. I have also attended countless professional development opportunities and conferences to further excel in my career.
I am thrilled to start a new year on a fresh "canvas!" We have many exciting projects and lessons planned for the year as we shoot for the stars!
