Hello families! I am Kyra Bennett, and I teach fourth grade math and science here at Knoles Elementary. I am so excited to meet you and welcome you to our class!
I was born in Dixon, Illinois, raised in Chandler, Arizona, and moved to Flagstaff to attend NAU. I quickly fell in love with this town and feel so privileged to get to remain here and teach! I am passionate about culture, writing, coffee, nature, and most of all teaching!
This is not my class, it’s ours! I believe that a classroom is a community, and we’re all members- students, families, and teachers. I recognize that you are experts on your child, and I am anxious to collaborate and hear your insights as we all work together for learning.
As a teacher, my goal is not to fill your child’s brain with information- I am here to take them in as the skilled, talented, capable, knowledgeable, and valuable individuals that they are, and expand on what they already have. My goal is to give them the tools they need, lead the way, and watch them grow!
I believe that children learn best when they feel safe, respected, and loved. I have seen the magic that happens when a teacher truly knows their students, and vice versa. That's why making connections with my students is so important to me.
I cannot wait to begin teaching and learning with you all. Welcome to our class!
