Christy Benway

The 2018-19 school year is my second year as a teacher. Before becoming a teacher, I spent many years in the classroom as a para-professional and before that as a volunteer. This is my sixth year at Belleview High School and before that, I was at Belleview Santos Elementary. Florida became my home in 2005 when we decided Connecticut winters were getting too long and too cold. Before leaving Connecticut, I was a City of New Haven Police Officer. 

I have two sons; one has already graduated from BHS and the other will be graduating soon. My husband owns a small business in Ocala and is also a former law enforcement officer. 

I enjoy going to school sporting events and cheering our Rattlers to victory! In my spare time, I enjoy reading and going to the movies and concerts.
