Ms. Teahesha M. Benoit

I am a 6th grade Science & Social Studies teacher here at Biloxi Upper Elementary! I am so glad to be part of the Indian Nation and to be your child's teacher this school year. I'm a proud coast native and a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Teaching and inspiring students is my passion and it brings me joy.  In my classroom, I have a high expectation of my students in all respects. Teaching students socially, academically and emotionally ensures the development of a well-rounded and successful child. Please contact me with any concerns and/or questions. Please know that my goal is to do what is best for students to promote achievement and success.
