Mrs. Katie Benjamin
Born and raised in Northern Virginia and the Arlington Diocese, I embrace new opportunities and I am thrilled to be here with my precious kindergarteners at Aquinas! I came from 12th grade regular and Advanced Placement Government students to bright-eyed 5 year old learners! My career in education began using a VCR and chalkboard while teaching high school; today I use a Smartboard. After my eldest son was born in 2012, it was quite the change teaching virtual online classes for the next 9 years, and an even bigger change teaching kindergartners this year. It has been a highlight in my life!

Aquinas is a community that works tirelessly to create saints. My prayer is that I can be instrumental in helping your child become one.
“A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints.” Pope Benedict XVI
