Mrs. Melinda's
5th Grade
Hello, my name is Melinda Hendley. This is my eighth year teaching  here at Benton Elementary.  I taught 7 years in kindergarten and this is my first year in 5th grade. This year we have 14 girls and 8 boys in our class.  Each child brings a special element to our class. It is a pleasure to teach such a sweet bunch of children.
Many of the activities that you will find below are from my 2001-2002 class.
