Mrs. Lee

My name is Averil Wheeler-Lee and this is my 2nd year teaching 4th grade at Benhaven Elementary. I am from the island of Jamaica now living in the Spring Lake area. 

I have  great expectations for my class. Each student will be given individual attention through diffentiated learning activities. I strive to create the desirable ethos that will make the classroom a comfortable and environment that is conducive to learning. Every child has his/her strengths, and I aspire to help each child excel and perform at his/her full potential.

Parents, guardians, and volunteers are integral parts of every classroom. I look forward to working with all these and other stakeholders to ensure a successful year for our students. I have an open door for suggestions and discussions on what is best for our students. Through mutual support and cooperation, I anticipate that this will be our students greatest year in school.

It is my pleasure to have  such great students and wonderful parents this year, and I consider it a privilege that you have entrusted your child to my care. I
