My Classroom Mission
The third grade students in Mrs. Benjamin's class would love to grow up to be helpfuland responsible community members. We will do this by graduating from high school and college/military. We will work hard to learn and do this by listening, following directons, taking chances and making mistakes.
I am 26 years old and have been married three years in April. This is my fourth year teaching third grade but this is my second year at Troutman Elementary. I taught at Idlewild Elementary School for the past two years in Charlotte. I am from Syracuse, NY and I have only lived in North Carolina for a little over 3 years. We have two dogs, Harlie and Bear who are both labrador retrievers. This past June I had a son named Mason and he is the light of my life. I love spending time outdoors, especially at the lake. When I have free time, I also love to read and craft. I absolutely LOVE teaching and couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life.
