Coach Thorpe

         My name is Anthony Thorpe and I have been teaching in Johnston County for the last 11 years.  I spent 6 years at Polenta Elementary and transferred to Benson Elementary in January 2015.  I've lived in several different places growing up including Indianapolis IN, Savannah GA, Morehead KY, Smyrna DE, and most recently Garner NC. 


         I graduated from Morehead State University with my Bachelors in Health and Physical Education.  I am certified to teach grades K-12 and am also certified in CPR.
