Mike Benzie is a teacher at Springfield Elementary School and teaches the fifth grade class.
After a dodgeball game which was unfairly won by the 5th grade, the 4th grade started fighting the fifth grade and one of his students walked into his lesson and fell over after being attacked by fourth graders.
He later was talking badly of the 4th grade in the staff room and got into a fight with Edna Krabappel, starting a massive teacher brawl. He promptly engaged Edna head-on, though she won by throwing him across a table.
- His surname was revealed in the script for "Moms I'd Like to Forget" at Simpsons World.
- In the script, he was referred to as Mr. Benzie and only called Mike by Edna.
