Mrs. Benitez

Hello! My name is Lily Benitez. I have been teaching at Maxwell Academy since 2011. I grew up in Duarte and went to Beardslee, Northview, and Duarte High School. I attended California State University of Long Beach, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I also continued my education and received my Master of Arts in Education Degree with a focus on Educational Technology.

I am so excited for this school year! Students will be exploring their identity, celebrations, their community, and much much more!

If you have any questions, concerns, or any amazing action your child has shown contact me! I would love to have the opportunity to meet with you. You can also find me in Twitter! I will be posting fun, interesting, and amazing things that are happening in the classroom! My twitter handle is @mrs_benitez1.
