Meet our Principal

Mrs. Kristina Benson is the Principal for our school. She recently finished her Doctoral Degree. She continues to learn and grown to be able to provide our students with the best educational opportunities as possible. She is truly committed to public education.  In addition, she encourages her staff to learn and grow in their own professional education.

She believes in teamwork.  She encourages her staff to work as a team and supports our professional learning communities on each grade level.  She is often found attending meetings with grade levels to discuss best practices and identifying ways to help all of our students.

She promotes communication with families. She has a school advisory council and PTA that involves many parents and community members to increase communication with all stakeholders.  In addition, she and staff work to communicate with our Polenta Families and community through social media and school wide Class DoJo.

Polenta Elementary is lucky to have her positive and dedicated leadership.
