Ms. Cristina Benavides

Hi!  My name is Ms. Benavides and welcome to Art at Bush Middle School! I'm very excited about the upcoming school year and I look forward to working with your child!

Here is a little information about myself:  I received my BFA in Communication Art (Graphic Design) at Texas State University and soon after I earned my teaching certification.  In 2004, I was hired by NEISD and have been teaching here ever since.  My hobbies include drawing, painting, printmaking and needle felting.   I also enjoy traveling to other countries, hanging out with my friends/ family and learning new things.  

If you have any questions, you can contact me at cbenav@neisd.net.  This is the best way to reach me.  I will try my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
