Hi, I'm Mary Beneke, and I teach 5th grade social studies and science at MNW!
This is my 27th year of teaching. I spent ten years teaching in the Palmer school system, two years in the St. Edmond school system, and I have been here at MNW for 15 years. Besides teaching, I coach the MNW girls varsity volleyball team.
When I'm not busy teaching and coaching, you might find me cheering on the Hawkeyes, reading, going for long walks, or spending time with my children and grandchildren.
