Welcome to Ms. Benda's 4th Grade Class!

My name is Michelle Benda. I have been at Lothrop since 2018. I graduated from Midland University in May 2018 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education and Coaching.
I am very excited to be your child's teacher this school year!


My expectations are for my students to try their best and to not give up. I also want my students to treat their peers with respect and kind language.

Fourth Grade Math focuses on multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and basic geometry.
Fourth Grade Reading focuses on Comprehension, Vocabulary, Phonics, and reading skills and strategies.
