Ms. Jessica Benes

  • Hi there! I've worked in Westminster schools for five years as a CLD teacher, which means I teach English to students who know more than one language.
  • Before that I was a newspaper reporter in Loveland, CO
  • In 2007-2009, I did Peace Corps in Ukraine for two years, where I taught English as another language. That experience changed my life and is ultimately why I became a teacher!
  • I have a daughter named Gracie and I live for now with my parents in a lovely home in Loveland, Colorado. 
    • Gracie is my miracle baby and the best thing I ever did. She just turned one years old!
  • I also have a sister and brother. My sister has two wonderful boys and they LOVE Gracie.
  • I love to read, write, paint and draw in my spare time (which I don’t have a lot of; I have a baby!!)
