My name is Leroy Benavidez and I am thrilled to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year. I graduated from the University of New Mexico in 1992 and have been teaching for the past 20 years, 7 years in the Ysleta District and 13 years for the El Paso Independent School District. I have taught 1 year in Pre-K, 13 years in Kindergarten, 5 years in first grade and 1 year in second grade.
Please help me make this a successful year for your child by bringing him or her to school on time and on a regular basis, the fewer the absences, the better. Also, always help your child with his or her homework. Talk to your child after school. Always ask what he or she learned in school that day and encourage him or her to tell you of any challenges he or she may be experiencing. And always read with your child whenever possible.
My conference time is from 8:15 to 9:00 in the morning. Please feel free to come by and visit with me if you have any questions or concerns. You may also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at (915) 774-4020 and leave a message. Thank you for your support.
