the Art Room
Mrs. Stephanie Benson
Hi! My name is Stephanie Benson. I am the Art teacher at Oakley Elementary and Barnardsville Elementary. This year, I am also at Woodfin Elementary part time. I am at Oakley on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon. I am at Barnardsville on Thursday and Woodfin Friday morning. This is my 7th year teaching in Buncombe County.
A little about me:
I grew up in Jamestown, NC, about two and a half hours east of Asheville. I went to college at East Carolina University and graduated in December, 2000, with a BFA in K-12 Art Education with a concentration in Textiles. After college, in August of 2001, I accepted a teaching job and moved to Newport News, VA. I taught K-5 Art in Newport News for 7 years before getting married and moving to Asheville in June, 2008. My husband is originally from Asheville. We live in Asheville with our son, Jacob. We also have 2 dogs (Sasha and Panjo) and several cats. I am a big animal lover. Some of my hobbies include photography, traveling, shopping, spending time with my family, reading a good book, and training and playing with my dogs.
