Mrs. Sofia Gilliland

This 2019-2020 school year has come off to a great start! I am really enjoying each and everyone of my fourth grade students.
 I am so blessed to be able to shape and educate these special children. I am very excited to meet new faces every year with new ideas and experiences. It's always a pleasure and I look forward to  getting to know my student's families. I know that together we will have a very productive school year filled with many learning opportunities. I will be sending home a weekly newsletter and if you miss it, please look online under Bentsen's faculty for my name where you will find updates as well. 

This marks my  29th  year in education.  I have truly enjoyed each and every year. Sharyland ISD  15 years and McAllen ISD for 13 years. I have taught grades K-6.  I am here to make this sixth grade year as productive and meaningful as I can and together we will made a difference.

I am married and have two handsome sons, one yet in college. I also have two active dogs and two lazy cats. I enjoy exercising, spending time with my family, cooking and gardening. I enjoy traveling and learning about new places

Teaching has always been a passion for me while being very rewarding. I truly enjoy getting to know each student and proud to be a part of their educational experience.

 Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns through email or call to schedule a conference. My conference time is 11:15-12:00. Wednesdays are reserved for grade level meetings on campus.
