Medina Valley I.S.D Middle School teacher, Bertha Benedetti, has been named the May “Employee of the Month.” During the month of May, the District honors a district school teacher as the top employee. Mrs. Benedetti is retiring this year after teaching for 30 years of which 21 years have been with MVISD.
Mrs. Benedetti was inspired to become a teacher by her 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Warren, who made it look like so much fun. She has been teaching 6th grade ESL at Medina Valley Middle school for the last 19 years and considers this to be one of the highlights of her career. Mrs. Benedetti is a dedicated and valued teacher at MVISD. Mrs. Benedetti said "I have been very fortunate in working for Medina Valley because I have worked with the BEST. I will truly miss the GREAT people I work with. I love you and God bless."
Middle school principal, Mr. Mike Homann says, "Mrs. Benedetti is not only a great teacher, but it is the other small things she does outside the classroom that make her a great employee. Mrs. Benedetti spreads her kindness to the staff by leaving baked goods in the lounge for teachers every week. She also helps foster a sense of belonging and family through her encouragement and mentoring to our new teachers and staff members. She has helped develop a sense of ownership within her department that has greatly benefited our students through the years. These are only a few of the highlights of a wonderful person."
We are honored to have had Mrs. Benedetti teaching our MVISD children for the past 21 year. We wish her well in her retirement and new endeavors. Congratulations Mrs. Benedetti!!!!
