Welcome to 6th Grade English!

Hello! My name is Brooke Benck, and I teach 6th grade English on Team 6 Blue. I can't wait for a year full of learning and having fun with your student. Feel free to read below for a little bit more about me.
I am from Columbus, Nebraska, but I moved to Kearney when I began college at UNK. In 2023, I graduated with a degree in Middle Level English Language Arts Education (5-9) and a minor in Special Education. Before graduating, I completed my student teaching experience here in 7th grade English at Sunrise and subbed in KPS for some of the spring. I feel so grateful to be continuing my teaching experience at Sunrise. Go Silverhawks!! 
Communication is something I strongly value, and I believe it is necessary in order to help students be as successful as they can possibly be. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions, concerns, comments, or even just to introduce yourself! The best way to reach me is by email at [email protected] or by calling the school phone. For class information, please view my Canvas page.
