Kathy Benecke is an intervention specialist whose overriding concern is the success of her students. Mrs. Benecke is one of the most dedicated and talented teachers I have ever worked with in my 29 years of education, said Tracy Hertz, director of special education for the Ottawa Hills district.
Mrs. Benecke exceeds her basic responsibilities to ensure her students know how to apply their skills to their learning. She makes deft use of her sense of humor to engage and challenge her students, and shows them how to exploit their strengths to master their learning disabilities.
