Vanessa Benavides, Lead Teacher

Vanessa is a proud graduate of Texas State University, where she graduated with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. She also holds her Texas teaching certification for ESL and Early Childhood through 6th grade. During her free time, she enjoys volunteering, especially at the Boys and Girls Club. She has been working in the international school sector for the last five years and is very passionate about teaching global citizenship and international-mindedness, which is why she loves the IB program. Spanish is Vanessa’s mother tongue and loves sharing her language and culture with her students.

In Vanessa’s free time, she enjoys reading books, playing with her two-year-old son, snuggling with her dogs Odie and Bella and traveling with her family. She is ecstatic to be part of this incredibly diverse community of families and teachers.
