Mrs. Bennie Steele

I don't think I ever considered another career choice. I always knew I would be a teacher! I am fairly new to central Texas as my husband and I moved to New Braunfels in July of 2015. We are originally from Spring, just north of Houston. My prior 15 years years of teaching were in private and parochial school settings. This is my third year at Crockett and I truly love this school. I look forward to seeing my 21 shining faces every morning. One of my greatest joys is developing a caring relationship with each of my students so they know individually how important they are to me. 

In my free time I enjoy a variety of activities. My husband and I are always looking for new trails to hike. We are still exploring the small towns that abound in this area. At home, I am always tweaking my  decor with "finds" from antique, junk or thrift stores. Boomer, our blue heeler, is highly energetic and demands a long daily walk. I relax with yoga, a great book, or a beverage on my back patio. 

My husband, Rex, works at Texas State. My daughter, Whitney, is married and lives in Dallas. We have two grandchildren, James and Elizabeth. Clay, 23, lives in Spring.
