Hello and welcome to 1st grade! I'm Chelsea Bench and love being a part of the Stem School community.
I am originally from Florida, but moved to Colorado to finish college and be closer to my family. Since being in Colorado (about 7 years) I have graduated from the University of Colorado-Denver with my Bachelor's degree majoring in elementary education. I have always known I wanted to teach at the elementary school level and have been so lucky to get to work with students in grades K-5 throughout my career.
Before joining the Stem family in 2019 I taught kindergarten and 1st grade in Denver Public Schools.
When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, adventuring outside (when it's warm), or sitting on the couch playing a fun video game.
