Miss Elyssa Benavides

Howdy Badger Nation! Welcome to my page! This is my third year teaching and first year at Bishop High School! I am a Rio Grande Valley native, where I grew up in a agricultural background. I am an Alumni of, Javelina Nation, Texas A&M University- Kingsville Class of '18.

 I am the new Agriculture Sciences and Welding Teacher. I will be teaching Principles of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources, Intro to Welding/Agriculture Mechanics. Outside of the classroom I will be serving as an advisor to the Bishop FFA chapter. I am really excited to be apart of the Badger Family! My hobbies include running, reading, playing with my fur baby, and hunting and fishing. 

Let your faith be bigger than your fears!
