Welcome to the Kindergarten 2018-2019 Webpage
My name is Melinda Bentz and this is my fifth year teaching Kindergarten at SES. I previously taught first grade at SES for 11 years. I am married and have 3 children. My son Beck, 19, graduated from Catoctin High School two years ago.  My daughter Emma, 17,  is currently a Senior at Catoctin High School.  My daughter Faith, 13,  is in 8th grade at Thurmont Middle School.   
I have lived in Frederick County most of my life. I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Hood College and my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, also from Hood College. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, walking and listening to music.
