Mr. Benton Timpanaro

My name is Benton Timpanaro. I am so excited to begin my 12th year at Anna ISD, with this being my 2nd year here at Harlow Elementary.  While in the district I have taught everything from physical education, 4th & 5th grade to coaching (baseball & football).  In 2016 I finished up my masters at Texas A&M Commerce and became a School Counselor. 

I am a proud dad to two kids. Taiden who is in Kindergarten this year and Prestyn who is 3 years old. 

This year I will provide guidance to all classrooms, conduct small group counseling, and work individually with students, parents and teachers. My goal is to help every student feel capable and connected. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
