Mrs. Mari Benavides

Hello! Welcome to my webpage. My name is Mari Benavides,  and I am a second grade  teacher here at Silvercrest Elementary School.  This will be my  15th year as a second grade teacher and my 18th year teaching.  I have also taught Bilingual second grade, fourth grade, and Kindergarten.
I grew up in Houston, Texas.  I attended the University of Houston after serving in the Army for a few years. I have 3 children. My daughter and son attend the University of Houston and my youngest is a second grader. 
It is my philosophy and my mission to instill in my students the belief that they can do anything they set their mind to and with my help, I hope to guide them along that path. My goal is to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and being challenged. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident and with an enhanced passion for learning. 
I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom.  I am very excited about working with your child this year!
