Jennica Benkert - Third Grade
I am so excited to be on the Gateway Eagles staff this fall and return to third grade! I earned my B.A. in English from Vanguard University of Southern California in 2002, attended California Lutheran University for my teacher preparation program, and have since taught children in every grade level, spending four years as a high school English teacher and 11 years as a sub at Gateway in all classes. I am married, have three children who attend Gateway, and we have the best cat ever, Sweet Pea. I love playing board games with my family, camping, reading, quilting, crocheting, and drinking coffee. And of course, I love kids!
