Mrs. Liz Bender

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be teaching in first grade this year!  Although my journey was somewhat long and winding, I truly have found my home here at Mathews Elementary.  I graduated from Southern Methodist University with my BBA in accounting.  After years as a CPA, Information Systems Consultant, and then a stay at home mom, I have finally found my true passion in the classroom.  When I'm not with my Mathews family, I'm at home here in Plano with my husband and our two playful Labs, Rose and Dixie.  My daughter, Emma, attends college at Texas A&M in College Station, and my son, Jack, just started his freshman year at Oklahoma State University.  They both attended Mathews for elementary school, so we have many fond memories of this wonderful school and I'm happy to be a Mathews Maverick!
