Ms. Kelsee Bensley
My name is Kelsee Bensley and I am very happy to be a part of the Tahoe Lake family. As an education specialist, I work with exceptional students. I enjoy helping school teams develop individualized support systems to help our students grow to their fullest potential. My past experiences include working as a behaviorist and inclusion specialist for students with social, emotional and behavioral support needs. I have also worked as a researcher and lecturer at the university level in the teacher education program at UC Santa Barbara where I am currently enrolled as a Ph.D. candidate. My dissertation study involves developing an understanding of how to best meet the needs of Tier 2 and 3 students with social and emotional needs within a PBIS framework. I am proud to be a part of the special education team for Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Bryce, our baby basset hound, Winnie, and our orange tabby, Sunny. Some of our favorite Tahoe activities include hiking, biking, golfing, skiing, and spending time out on the lake. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful, mountain paradise!
