Ms. Benson




My name is Ms. Benson and I am SO excited to be a part of the AOES family! My husband and I are THRILLED to be moving to Charleston from Crystal Lake, Illinois. I received my degree in elementary education from the University of Illinois. I have been teaching K-2 for the last 7 years and absolutely love working with children of all ages. 

Here are some fun facts about me: 
1. We have two dogs named Mo and Millie who travel everywhere with us. 
2. I grew up next to a zoo, and I love animals. 
3. There is nothing better than finding a cozy spot and reading a good book. 
4. My favorite hobby is yoga. I teach it and take it in my free time. 
5. When I get excited about learning, I am known to dance! 

Looking forward to an exciting school year!
