Meet the Teacher



Welcome to First Grade!
Get ready for a busy, fun, and exciting year!


My name is Carolyn Bentsen and this is my 11th year teaching First Grade. In addition to first grade, I have also taught kindergarten and third grade here at
St. B/OLH. In my humble opinion, first grade is the best!

I earned my Bachelor's degree in English from the State University of New York at Albany and my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Long Island University/C.W. Post.  I am also a proud product of Catholic education having attended Catholic school for nine years from kindergarten through eighth grade. I am happy to be able to share my faith with my students.


My hope is that my students develop a lifelong love of learning!
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with my fabulous First Graders!
