Name / Position:
Nikki Bennight – Elementary Teacher
What is the most fulfilling part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is being a part of ALL the students lives!! I love being able to teach about Jesus throughout the day in everything we do!! I love teaching all the subjects, but especially math!! There isn’t anything about being teacher that I don’t ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!
Why do you love education / teaching? What made you decide to become teacher?
I am a newish teacher, only 3 years now. It took me a long time and down lots of different roads to find where God wanted me to be!! When I finally listened to God about where I was went to be, it was a no-brainer!! I LOVE kids and LOVE teaching!!! Thank you Jesus for giving me this gift!!!!
What do you love about CCCS?
There are many reasons why I love CCCS!! I love the support that we all have for each other! I love that my voice matters!! I love that every students’ voice matters!! I love that the administration has an open door policy for us as staff and the students!! I LOVE that God has put us all together for his purpose!!!
What motivates you to come to work each day?
Teaching is where God wanted me to be!!!! I love everything about it, but most importantly I love EVERY student!! It’s not difficult to come to work when you feel the way I do about it!!!!
What is the hardest part of your job?
I would say that the hardest part of teaching is hoping and praying that I met every students needs, that I made sure that they know that I love and care for them!! But most importantly, that Jesus loves and cares about them the most!!!
How do you measure success in your classroom?
Success is not measured as a whole class but from each individual student! Every student has their own way of learning and has specific needs. When each one of their needs are met and each concept is learned then that is success!!!
How do you help students succeed?
By meeting ALL their needs!! From extra help with reading, to different ways of explaining math! From a shoulder to cry on, to a hug to make the day better!!!
What’s your favorite thing to do apart from teaching?
Being with my family!! We go out in the woods, camping, hunting, and 4-wheeling!! I also enjoy reading, crocheting and coloring!
