Mrs. Benson is originally from the Grand Rapids area. She graduated from Hope College in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Studies. During her time at Hope, Mrs. Benson was accepted to the Washington D.C. Honors program where she spent a semester as an intern at The National Archives and Records Administration. While in D.C., she worked in area high schools to teach students about how to research primary sources and organized the city wide National History Day Competition.
Outside of loving to teach, Mrs. Benson also enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, and hanging out with any variety of animals.
This year Mrs. Benson will be teaching Psychology, AP Psych, and US History. She is looking forward to her first year at WMAA building a community with the staff, parents, and students!
