Hello! My name is Beth Estrada and I am a second-grade teacher at Bennett Elementary. My favorite thing about working in education is that every year is different. Each class brings a unique set of personalities and adventures.
When I am not at work, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with my family.
My family consists of my husband, Anthony and our two girls Vivian and Charlotte.
I received my BA in Elementary Education and Special Education from Northern Arizona University. I earned my MA in Special Education is from the University of Northern Colorado.
I’m lucky to have called Bennett home for my entire teaching career. I started as a special education Resource Teacher (now called an Integrated Services Teacher), which I enjoyed for five years. I then moved into teaching 5th grade for five years. I have been teaching 2nd grade for the past eight years. I’m proud to say that I love each of those roles and would happily go back to teach them again.
My favorite children’s book is Charlotte’s Web. This is a great classic of children’s literature. The characters and setting come alive with personality. It also teaches about friendship, compassion, and dedication.
