Name: Meliza Cleofas Benavidez
Class: 4A, 5A, 7A, 8A




I graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree in Mathematics. I have 9 years teaching experience both in primary and secondary levels. I spent 6 years of teaching here in the UAE. This year is my 3rd year of teaching in BIPS.
I believe to be a successful Maths teacher, it is not enough for the students to be able to “do the maths”, but to solve word problem or perform the operations. Ultimately, I wanted them to experience mathematics for themselves as an exciting, useful, creative and sense-making activity.
I look forward for a harmonious parent-teacher relationship. Let us work together for the success of your child’s future.
I hope to have a wonderful new academic year ahead with you and your child.
