Michelle Benedict

Armstrong Elementary
3rd Grade Teacher
Greater St. Louis Area
Michelle Benedict is a mother, educator, presenter, and practitioner of mindfulness. She earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Lindenwood University and is currently a 3rd Grade Teacher in an Hazelwood School District in St. Louis, Missouri. She has served many roles, from preschool teacher to special education teacher. She recently presented “Rise Above with Mindfulness” at the TEDx Lindenwood. Michelle incorporates mindfulness and self-regulation into her classroom lessons and has seen significant positive behavioral shifts as a result of these practices. She advocates mindfulness for all, but believes in the larger need for trauma informed responses in our society. As a parent for more than half of her life, Michelle has raised her four children with a supportive and authoritative style that she is proud to share with others. Each summer, she takes her two youngest children on a month-long outdoor camping adventure to help her family reconnect with each other and nature. They have traveled across America, over mountains and across deserts working toward their goal of sleeping under the stars in all 50 states. Michelle gives lectures and enrichment workshops for children and adults, aimed at fostering a more connected and mindful world.
