Hello everyone! My name is Ms. Benda. I have been teaching at Lothrop since 2018. My first two years here, I taught 4th grade. I'm teaching 2nd grade this year and absolutely loving it so far! I have been calling Omaha home since 2006! I graduated from Midland University in 2018 with a degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in Special Education and Coaching. When I'm not at school, you can see me hanging out with my friends and family, watching Netflix or tv, working out, or making things with my Cricut. Some of my favorite things are my family, the color purple, Mountain Dew, sour gummy worms, soccer, Huskers, Harry Potter, and any Marvel movie!
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.
