It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Benavidez Elementary. My name is Evelia Hernandez Montemayor and I have over sixteen years of educational experience for South San Antonio ISD and Harlandale ISD. I started my educational career as a Bilingual Elementary teacher, Bilingual/ESL Facilitator, then moved on as an Assistant Principal.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish/Psychology from Our Lady of the Lake University and my Master's degree in Educational Administration from Concordia University.
I am married and have three beautiful children; Miguel, Gabriel, and Lia.
I consider myself a lifelong learner and live by the philosophy my parents instilled in me at a young age: education is the key to success. I look forward to assisting all stakeholders on this campus and providing the best possible educational program for our students.
I would like to wish everyone a terrific school year. If there is anything I can assist you with, please feel free to contact me by phone at (210)977-7175.
