Biography

My name is Cynthia Benoit and I am pleased to begin my third year with YK1 at J. H. Sissons as a third grade teacher.

Originally from New Brunswick, I earned my Bachelor of Education specializing in k-8 from the University of Moncton. Throughout my first five years of teaching as a primary and literacy teacher, I also completed and later coordinated provincial trainings on learning disabilities with specification in reading

and writing learning disorders.  From 2010-2012, I was a part of the Integrated Services Teachers’ Team as  a specialist in reading and writing learning disorder for the District Scolaire Francophone du Nord-Est.

My passion for traveling and teaching in French minority settings later brought me to Louisiana for 3 years where I taught grade 3 French Immersion before arriving in the Northwest Territories. During my first 2 years in Yellowknife, I worked as a Program Support Teacher at both JHSissons and William McDonald School.

I am looking forward to new wonderful school year!
