Hello! My name is Michele Yebra and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Bennett. My favorite thing about education is seeing the lightbulb moment for students when new learning clicks. I also believe every child can grow and learn if given the right tools and resources.
This is my 2nd year at Bennett as a third grade teacher. I started my carrer as a 4th and 5th grade teacher in a different district in Colorado for 10 years. Then I took about 10 years to stay home with my children, and then was a substitute teacher in the district for 3 years. I am so excited to be back in the classrrom full time and to be at Bennett. I have enjoyed my last 20 years working with children in different compacitites. I also obtained my MA in Curriculum and Instruction from Regis University. My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education from University of Northern Iowa.
Personally, I have lived in Fort Collins for 6 years but in Colorado for 20 years. It is home! I share my adventures with my husband and my two children, Addison and Evan. We love Fort Collins and being so close to trails to hike. We love our all our outdoor sports in Colorado.
