Mrs. Jennifer Benton
My name is Jennifer Benton. I am thrilled to be teaching 1st grade for the 6th year in a row! First grade is a a year full of growth and adventure! My path to education started 18 years ago when I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have had the privilege to teach 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade in three states (Texas, Florida, North Carolina). While in Florida, I earned my Masters of Education from the University of North Florida. My passion for teaching and making a difference propels me forward.
When I am not at school, I am at home with my family. I am blessed to have two healthy girls, a loving and devoted husband, and an energetic puppy. Brynn is 3, although she will tell you that she is a big girl. She is a free spirit who loves to make up her own dance and gymnastic moves. Music inspires her movement. She is a sight to see! She is in love with her sister Emme. Emme is 19 months old. She is a busy little girl who loves the outdoors. Emme adores her fur brother Scout. Her smile and the twinkle in her eyes can light up a room. Mark, my husband, is outnumbered by the girls, but he is fine with that! He loves to play golf, fish, and spend time with his girls. Brynn gets free golf and fishing lessons from her daddy.
I am ready to set sail on a fabulous 1st grade adventure!
