Ms. Sophie Weston
I am so excited to begin my teaching career at Benson Middle! Using my expertise, I am honored to be teaching 8th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies. I was born in Oxford, England and grew up in Apex, NC. My entire family is English, so I have dual citizenship to the UK and the US. Now I live just outside of Raleigh with my dog, Opie, and 2 cats, Luna and Renly. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelors degree and the Univeristy of Glasgow in Scotland with a Masters. After returning to the States, I started working for the North Carolina Museum of History. During my career in the museum field I realized that my true passion was sharing my love of history with young adults. It was then that I changed my career path and entered the education field. I look forward to sharing this passion with my students every day!
