Hello! My name is Gabriele Beniak and this will be my first year at Mt. Pilchuck as a Special Education teacher grades K-5. I previously taught one year in Northern Minnesota before my husband and I moved to Washington in June 2017. I'm thrilled to be a part of the Mt. Pilchuck team and become involved in the Lake Stevens community! I strive to be a strong advocate for my students and look forward to assisting them grow academically and as a person. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors such as hiking, running and walking my dog, Grizzly.
