The Arizona Association of School Psychologists has named Palm Valley Elementary School Principal Jennifer Benjamin its 2021 Administrator of the Year.

During  Benjamin's eight years as principal, Palm Valley has twice been named an A+  School of Excellence and a National Blue Ribbon School.  

Palm Valley is part of the Litchfield Elementary School District. 

Benjamin is a beloved school leader who is lauded for her teamwork, educational expertise, and keen ability to foster a strong school family.

The former special education teacher is also a staunch advocate for Inclusion Revolution, a program that fosters the academic and social-emotional growth of students with special needs by having them spend part of their day in general education classrooms. 

Her Thunderbird family also houses the SAILS program (Social, Academic, Inclusion, and Life Skills) where general education students gain empathy, leadership skills, and new friendships by serving as peer tutors to students with special needs. 

Benjamin will be honored at a luncheon in Phoenix on November 5.
