Welcome to St. John the Baptist Kindergarten!  My name is Mrs. Christine Benson.  This is my 4th year teaching kindergarten at St. John's.  Prior, I taught kindergarten at St. John Vianney in South St. Paul for 14 years.  Needless to say, I ADORE teaching kinders!   Their excitement and enthusiasm, along with how much they learn and grow in just one school year is a wonderful, fun filled experience.  Here are a few things about me.

*B.A. in elementary education from the College of St. Catherine; M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on reading instruction from the University of St. Thomas

*I have also taught first grade and preschool in addition to kindergarten.

*I like walking, camping (R.V. style!), puzzles, games, and eating out!

Looking forward to seeing you soon at St. John the Baptist!
