Mr. Jose Benitez
My name is Jose Benitez and this is my 7th year teaching. This year I will be joining the Kruger Team and teaching Band. Recent accolades include, 2022 Teacher of the Year, 2021 TMEA Grant recipient, and 2016 Bandsmen of the year for UIW Band.
I graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word and received my bachelor's in Music Education EC-12. I believe that music is essential to a person's growth: mentally, physically, and emotionally. I also believe that we can learn responsibility, teamwork, self-discipline, and self-expression through Music Education. As a product of NEISD, I look forward to working in the district I grew up in.
During my off time, you can see me playing around town as a member of the Heart of Texas Band, or walking with my dogs.
